University of Bath student and judo player Jan Gosiewski has achieved the biggest win of his career to date by taking silver at the European Open in Estonia.
Gosiewski, who is studying for an MSc in Design Engineering at the University after already graduating with a Mechanical Engineering degree, took silver in the under-73kg class in Tallinn on Saturday.
After winning his opening four contests, Gosiewski went down to Israel’s Sagi Muki in the final.
Gosiweski, who receives support from a Santander Sports Scholarship at the University, said: “I’m gutted I missed out on the gold medal, but I’m happy with my consistency this year with two medals and a fifth place from three continental opens. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year will bring.”
Saturday’s result followed a bronze medal that Gosiewski won at the European Cup in Warsaw, Poland, in March and a fifth place in Bucharest, Romania, earlier this month.
Ben Fletcher, also based at the University of Bath, came seventh in the under-100kg class in Tallinn.
Gosiewski’s silver medal is the latest in a string of impressive performances achieved this year by Team Bath judo players.
