Team Bath Judo’s George Kroussaniotakis follows up Cyprus national title with best-ever Continental Open result in Lebanon
University of Bath student George Kroussaniotakis followed up his victory at the Cyprus Judo Championships by earning another podium place at the Zouk Mikhael Asian Open in Lebanon.
The Sport & Exercise Science student, who trains with Team Bath Judo in the Sports Training Village dojo, was crowned as national champion in the men’s -100kg weight division.
He then continued that fine form in Lebanon, producing his best-ever result at Continental Open level as he beat Kuwait’s Ghanam Aldikan and Nicolas Pavlovski of France on his way to the -100kg final. Estonia’s Grigori Minaskin took the win in the gold-medal match but silver was an impressive result for Kroussaniotakis.
