VALUABLE POINTS: North Lopham judo ace Colin Oates

North Lopham’s judo star Colin Oates took a further step towards 2016 Olympic qualification with a promising display in a World Masters event in Morocco.

Following on from a silver medal-winning display at a Grand Slam event in Baku, Azerbaijan earlier this month, the 31-year-old again secured valuable world ranking and Olympic qualification points by reaching the quarter-finals to claim a seventh-place finish.

Oates is now preparing to fly out to Mongolia ahead of appearing in the inaugural European Games in Baku next month.
