The Auckland International Open is New Zealand's premiere Judo competition. It attracts players from Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.
|Three competition mat areas going for two days so that 350 competitors all had an opportunity to compete.
We only enter our most confident and competent players in this competition. This year we had four juniors fighting. Unfortunately one was injured training before the competition (but he still came and watched his team mates!)
The remaining three all got medals. We were very proud of them all. Great to see a group of competitive kids working together and doing well. Here are some photos from the day.

|The chaos on the sideline.. Coaches, competitors, officials. This year the spectators had to remain in the seating area. This is to make sure that the sidelines are kept clear and are able to be managed.
