Team Bath judo player Tom Reed scored the biggest result of his career by winning gold at the IJF Grand Prix in Miami.
Reed beat Tuvshinjargal Gan of Mongolia with a golden score in the semi-final of the under-81kg class event.
He followed that up with victory in the final over Argentina’s Emmanuel Lucenti, who finished seventh in the division at the London 2012 Olympics.
Reed is a University of Bath Business Administration graduate.
Juergen Klinger, Team Bath’s head judo coach, said: “It was a good result for Tom, who looked dominant and very confident in the final. His result in Miami has earned him a lot of points on the world ranking list.”
Reed’s success in Miami was the latest in a string of impressive performance achieved by Team Bath judo players this year.
There were also seventh place finishes in Miami for Team Bath player Emmanuel Nartey at under-73kg and for Andy Burns at under-90kg.
