Roosters win awards at Junior League presentation
Caroline Hain wins three judo gold medals ive members of the Kido-Mingara Judo Academy in Tuggerah competed in the NSW International Open Championships recently in Blacktown and bought back six medals between them.
The event was an important National Points tournament for players who are seeking selection for 2013 International events. Caroline Hain dominated the U48kg division in all age categories and won three gold medals. She impressed her coaches by powering through with her unusual and relentless attacking style and variety of throwing techniques. She was the stand out player of the tournament which was acknowledged by the selectors who awarded her the female Rising Star
trophy. Caroline is training at the Australian Institute of Sport during the school break in preparation for the Oceania Judo Union Continental Championship in Samoa. Liam Yokoyama will join Caroline in representing Kido Mingara at the event which counts toward Commonwealth Games selection. Neeson Naidoo maintained his dominance with his attacking style. His aim was to improve on last year’s minor medal. He again showed his solid Judo skills over his opponents in the U55kg division and won gold. He impressed the coaches by powering through with fast ashi (foot sweep) combinations to textbook shoulder throws and uchimata. Angelina Yokoyama went up in the 52kg division to vie for a spot on the Youth Olympic Trial event scheduled for early next year.

She had a challenging time with some difficult bouts but her take back throws, solid, groundwork and mature command of submission techniques defence secured her the silver medal. Kasiea Naidoo is showing marked improvement in major NSW events throwing with her seoitosh (shoulder throw) and combinations to finish with ground holding technique for a welldeserved bronze medal. Daniel Villani dominated his U12 division but was harshly judged by the referees on the execution of an uranage (sacrifice throw) that he initiated, which saw him lose one bout and settle for a bronze medal. It was a near repeat of the previous year at this event, where the referees reversed their own decision on his throw in the finals. “I know that I can beat the players; that is most important for me,” said the philosophical 10 year old.
