On May 3, Team Georgia traveled to Chicago to compete in the 2nd Annual National Judo Duals competition. Twenty (20) athletes from the Southeast were matched against opponents from Ohio and Illinois for judo bragging rights! Each team split into two divisions — older and younger athletes. The younger team fought hard and brought home second place while the older team was pushed to third place by losses in two uncontested divisions. We can’t wait for next year!

After the competition we explored downtown Chicago’s Navy Pier and indulged in our first deep dish pizza! Enjoy our highlight reel below:
