Katie Carruthers and Jocelyn Wilson have been called up to train with the national squad of the British Judo Council following their success at the recent British Championships. Katie was crowned national champion in the junior girl under 48kg competition, while Jocelyn fought in a huge group of 18 girls and came out with a bronze. The girls both started judo just over two years ago after a taster session in their primary school and have already achieved their solid yellow belts. They train three times every week, once each in Catterick, Northallerton and Richmond at the FIJ Sportif judo club. They will now train with the national team and have already attended a training camp in Scotland where they were coached by ex-national and Olympic-level judo coaches including Sam Ingram recently-retired judo Scotland athelete and Team GB Paralympian and John Buchanan Olympian and World and Commonwealth medallist. The girls are no strangers to competitions and regularly take part in events across England, Ireland and Scotland. They competed and won medals in the North East Grand Prix series, which includes five events over the year. Katie and Jocelyn are highly regarded in school for their contributions to sport. They both play netball and hockey, with Jocelyn playing football and Katie playing rugby.
