Two members of Stokenchurch Judo Club have won medals at the Nihon Dutch Shensho Judo tournament in Holland.
Sean McKellar and Shaun Banks, who are also members of the Great Britain squad, were funded to attend the event in Eindhoven, Holland by the Bucks Masonic Centenary Fund (BMCF) where they competed against individuals worldwide in a tournament for those with learning difficulties.
Sean McKellar was the oldest in the group and had to compete in four challenging contests before emerging victorious with a gold medal.
Shaun Banks also competed in four contests and managed to beat an impressive challenger who was much bigger than him. He gained a bronze medal.
Jean Cleere, of the Stokenchurch Judo Club who organised the funding and accompanied the group to the event thanked the BMCF for the contribution which facilitated the two competitors success.
