Ben Fletcher back on international stage at 2017 European Judo Championships

21 April 2017

Team Bath Judo’s Ben Fletcher will represent Great Britain once again when he competes at the 2017 European Championships in Warsaw, Poland, this weekend.

The Rio 2016 Olympian, a sporting ambassador for Team Bath partners MJ Church, will contest the -100kg weight division on Saturday in the first major championship of the Tokyo 2020 cycle.

Fletcher, coached by Juergen Klinger at the University of Bath Sports Training Village, has competed at three previous European Championships and will be looking to build on his seventh-placed finish in 2016.

He has taken to the mat twice already this year, winning bronze at the European Open in Italy and fifth at the Dusseldorf Grand Prix in Germany.
