Girl Power!

From October 9-10, a judo world cup event for women was held in Baku, Azerbaijan.  The team consisted of six women ranging from former Olympians to young Olympic hopefuls.  On the first day of the event, our light and middle weight girls took charge. Joliane Melancon (Canadian Athletes Now Fund Recipient) and Stefanie Tremblay both placed top seven in the under 52 kilogram division while Myriam Lamarche finished fifth in the under 63 kilogram division. On the second day of the event, the women’s judo team finished strong by wrapping up the competition with 3 medals.  Kelita Zupancic (Canadian Athletes Now Fund Recipient) took gold in the under 70 kilogram division and Amy Cotton and Marylise Levesque took third in the under 78 kilogram category.  Way to go girls!
