Congratulations to Judo player Colin Oates who won a gold medal in Baku, Azerbaijan, and in so doing is now rated sixth in the world.
What a fantastic achievement and how lucky we are in Diss to have such a sportsman amongst us.
Praise also to the Kumo judo club who have nurtured him to this level. The club in question have produced many other fine players over the years and must be one of the best in the country. I am sure we will see more champions emerge from this club in the future.
