Judoist earns bronze at national championship

Victoria judoist Tristan Alexander came home with a bronze medal at the Canadian National Judo Championships held last weekend in Saguenay, Que.

Alexander fought in the under-18 plus 100 kilogram division. He was the only Victoria judoist to medal at the nationals.

Although disappointed that he couldn't bring home anything higher, the nationals caps off a successful year for the 16-year-old Oak Bay High student who has won two gold medals, a silver and a bronze in national- and, international-level competition.

Other Victoria athletes attending were Josh van Meurs, Tiffany Coolican and Jackson Minnick.
