ONE of the stars of British Judo’s highly-successful London 2012 team will return to action at the 2013 British Championships.
Paralympic silver medallist Sam Ingram prepares to take on the country’s leading fully sighted judoka in Sheffield.
Coventry-born Ingram, who went one better than his Beijing bronze medal in London, was born with conal dystrophy and has been visually impaired all his life.
He is now based in Edinburgh and will compete in the -90kg category in Sheffield on January 20 alongside training partner and five-time World Cup medallist Matthew Purssey.
"I'm really looking forward to fighting in the British Championships once again," said Ingram, who has aspirations to compete at the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games.
"I always enjoy the challenge of fighting fully sighted judoka and I can’t wait to get back on the mat in front of a home crowd."
