Judo is a family sport for the DiMarcos who travelled to Burnaby for a tournament this past weekend.

Georgia DiMarco brought home a silver medal after winning one fight and losing one; Jeff brought home a bronze medal after fighting four matches, winning two and losing two; and Anthony DiMarco received a participation ribbon for fighting in the white belt division.

Anthony describes his first experience at a tournament as really hard.

“They had me in hold-downs the whole time and I couldn’t get out,” Anthony said.

Georgia is a bit more experienced having participated in eight tournaments in the past.

She said the tournament was an improvement from last year’s event where she also competed.

“It was my second time competing in Burnaby, last time I lost and this time I got second so I’m happy with that,” Georgia said.

Jeff has been competing for years, and although he won two fights, it is the two losses that he is focusing on now.

“Last night at practice I was working on how to not let that happen again,” Jeff said.

“I’m looking forward to my next tournament in February.”

Jeff is the head coach at the Williams Lake Judo Club and added he is hoping that he will have more competitors representing Williams Lake at the next tournament.
