 Stamford High School student, Sofia Palmer Y7, is going from strength to strength with her successes in judo this year. After winning a gold medal in the Welsh National Judo Championships back in September, Sofia has just won a silver medal in the under 48kg category in Sweden.

This is the second time that Sofia’s Judo Club, Vale Judo in Oakham, have arranged for her to compete in Sweden. There were over 200 players competing in Molcolm and Sofia had to face three other competitors in her age and weight category. Sofia came away with a silver medal after strong and determined fights.

Sofia was accommodated by a local family which was a fantastic experience for her. After the judo event a big party was held and everyone had the opportunity to taste local food, including elk!
