Chloe Nunn bagged a well-deserved gold medal on her return from injury in the London Area Open.

Her performance was one of a number of highlights at the East London SportsDock for Bishop's Stortford Judokwai, who claimed 17 medals in total.

The other gold medallists were Hannah King, Lenny Tancock, Alfie Mitchell and Zachary Morrison.

Imogen Ranner took silver in both the juniors (under-21) and seniors (over-14), with medals of the same colour also being earned by Leticia Lima, Jamie King and Sam Eaton.

Bronze medals were won by Jessica Nunn, Eliza Sedgbeer, Queenie Tancock, Bobby King, Mahdi Huseinov, Emma Nunn and Iosin Huseinov, who was making his first appearance for the club, while fifth-place finishes were achieved by Eaton, Ben Nunn and Yousef Evloev.

The same venue was packed again for the London Area Mini-Mon and Low Grade Seniors.

Hard work and regular training paid off once more for Stortford as they claimed a 15-medal haul, including six golds.

In the red belts (under-12), gold went to Sadie France, silver was secured by Teddy Tancock, Joshua Tilley and Thomas White and bronze was bagged by Eva Tilley and Elias Agathangelou.

Gold medallists in the yellow and orange belts (under-16) were Hannah King, Ben Nunn and Yousef Evloev, while Jessica Nunn, Kacey Barnett, Ahmad Evloev and Lenny Tancock took home silver.

There were also gold medals for Matt Lines (red, yellow and orange belt seniors) and Jamie King (green and blue belt seniors).
