At the recent Northern Ireland schools championships held in the prestigious Foyle arena, Londonderry, two fighters from the Causeway Judo represented their respective schools in what turned out to be a very competitive and highly charged event.
The two fighters, Logan McIntyre and Colin McKeown both fought outstandingly and both returned home with medals ranking them as cream of Northern Ireland Judoka.
Logan McIntyre, no stranger to success and a pupil at Leaney Primary School, returned home crowned Northern Ireland champion. Logan fought in the Under 45 Kg category and his Gold medal came hot on the heels of his win at the Abbey Open where he won Silver at the Valley Leisure Centre.
His Causeway Judo squad team mate Colin, who goes to Ballymoney High School, secured a hard earned bronze medal after some tough bouts in the Under 37Kg category.
These two young men have reaped the rewards of diligence and persistency in their training as they constantly work hard and put in two to three nights training per week.
The two boys are members of the Causeway Judo squad which trains every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Preparations are now well underway to take both Logan and Colin to mainland Britain to further test their exceptional skills .
