Medals in Paradise                                           

On November 7, eleven members of the Canadian National Judo Team began their long and hard trip to Apia, Samoa for the 2010 World Cup event. After twenty-two hours of traveling, everyone made it in one piece and surprisingly with no luggage lost. By managing to ignore the gorgeous weather, unbearable heat, and crystal clear waters, the athletes fought hard and came out successful at the end.  The Canadian Judo Team returned home with 9 medals in total.  The medals consisted of 3 gold’s, 4 silver’s, and 2 bronze, which put Canada third in the overall ranking.  Way to go team!
