Tom Reed has been training with the High Performance Training Programme since the age of 16.
In October 2006 Tom commenced his studies in Business Management at the University of Bath, following a gap year where he trained at Tokai University in Japan.
Tom has long been one of Britain’s most capable performers as he possesses an explosive arsenal of throws that make him a crowd favourite on the domestic stage.
The Devizes judoka followed in his uncle’s footsteps by becoming a GB player, however he has begun to carve out his own reputation after winning the IJF Miami Grand Prix in June 2013 and achieving seventh in the Grand Prix in Rijeka that year.
