Hannah makes four-some start

Posted: 3pm 20 Dec 2021

Hannah Tretheway has made a superb start to her career with Hantokan Judo Club.

The eight-year-old from Scarborough has won two gold, one silver and one bronze medal from the four competitions she has entered.

The most recent was in November when she won gold in the Girls’ Under 26kg division at the South Queensland Regional Judo competition at Spring Hill.

'Judo is fun'

“Judo is fun and I’ve made lots of new friends in the class,” Hannah said. "I enjoy practicing the throws and it feels good when I do them in competition.

“I like training and competing and want to keep improving.”

Hannah started judo three years ago with Hantokan Judo Club, in Redcliffe PCYC and was recently graded to her yellow-orange belt, the fifth belt for juniors.

All welcome

She trains one night a week and combines judo with playing cricket and soccer.

Hantokan Head Instructor Chris Swalwell said training restarts on January 25 and all are welcome to attend.
