Natasha Maslen fighting at Junior European Championships, Saturday 21 September

A member of Bristol-based judo club Tora Judo Kai will represent Great Britain in the Junior European Championships this weekend in Bosnia. 20-year-old Natasha Maslen, who lives in Easton-in-Gordano and is studying at University of Bath, is hoping to build on her outstanding season so far this year which has seen her take gold at the British University Championships and win silver and bronze medals at the British Championships in both Junior and senior categories. She has also represented GBR at a number of European Junior Cups gaining bronze in Portugal and achieving some hard-won fifth places.

Around 400 judoka aged under 21 years from 40 countries are expected to compete at the Junior European Championships this weekend in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Fighting in the under 70kg weight group, Natasha is part of a 14-strong squad selected by the British Judo Association.
