Reed strikes gold in Miami

22 June 2013

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.
