Team Tournier Take on the Commonwealth

Father and son team Luc and Timeo Tournier travelled to Walsall, England last week to compete in the Commonwealth Judo Championships, held 25-29 September 2019.

Congratulations to Luc who competed in the Veteran Men M4 -66kg division winning GOLD for Australia. This is a wonderful result for a dedicated competitor and club coach who has struggled with injury in recent months. Luc then went on to coach Timeo in the Pre-Cadet Boys -46kg division the following day. It was a tough day of competition for Timeo who displayed great focus and determination to come back from a first round loss to make it all the way to the bronze medal fight. Timeo was defeated in the bronze medal fight by the Indian representative and placed 5th overall. What a fantastic result at a large international competition. We are very proud of your performance Timeo.

Congratulations to both Luc and Timeo for their great results. We are looking forward to more international medals from both of you in the coming years!
