Darren selected for Euros

10 June 2009

Team Bath judo player Darren Harris has been selected to represent Great Britain at next month’s Visually Impaired European Championships in Hungary.

Darren is a member of Britain’s five-strong team for the championships, which take place in Debrecen from 3-5 July.

He contests the under-66kg class, the division in which he competed at the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games.

Last month Darren won gold in the under-66kg class at the German Open, when he also collected gold in the open class for under-60kg, under-66kg and under-73kg athletes.

He has contested the last two European Championships, winning silver in the under-66kg class in 2007 in Azerbaijan.

The University of Bath has one of the leading university sports departments in the UK. Under its Team Bath brand, its success is based on the expertise and dedication of staff, and its excellent facilities, used by the community and Olympic medal winners alike.
