Commonwealth Title for Abigael Mcbeath

published: 25 May, 2016

I was selected by Judo Scotland to represent Scotland in the Commonwealth Judo Championships in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. On Saturday 23rd April I travelled out on the long 26 hour journey to Port Elizabeth, South Africa alongside 7 other athletes and 2 coaches all representing Scotland. I was to fight on the Wednesday (in the juniors) and Thursday (in the seniors). On the Wednesday I was faced with 3 tough fights which included one against the African number 1. I fought the best I could and came out with the result of winning all three fights to become Junior Commonwealth Champion. On the Thursday I competed in the senior category which is slightly out of my comfort zone. I had 3 fights one of which lasted just over 7minutes (4 minutes is a regular contest). To my own surprise I won 2 out of my 3 fights this day, leaving me with the silver medal, only losing out to a women from India who is competing in the Rio Olympics this year. Overall I really enjoyed the trip and it was a great experience for my judo to be able to develop and the trip has given me plenty of things on which I can work on as well as two medals. Although this was a very memorable moment in my life I hope it to not be the last in my judo career, I wish to find myself travelling to an increased number of trips like these in the future and strive to better myself at every one.
