Trinity Primary School pupil Giorgio Villis, attended the Nottingham Open Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competition and came away with the gold medal.

Giorgio had received a knock in the warm-up prior to his fight, but was adamant to continue with the competition. He competed against a much larger boy, defeating him by submission, with expert technique, to win the gold.

Throughout the past six months Giorgio has received in depth training in Walsall, in preparation for the European Championships and in recent weeks had increased intensity.

The Nottingham Open was a practice run for his game plan for the Europeans and his excellent result has boosted his motivation.
