This weekend Maxim competed at London Open 2019 hosted by British Judo Association with hundreds of judoka from across London. Maxim fought in a strongly contested under 60 kg category. Despite suffering a painful hand injury in his first contest, he battled on for a further three rounds and showed impressive clear wins by ippon to secure a third place bronze. Maxim demonstrated an outstanding skill level, bravery and strength of character and we look forward to seeing him progress in future competitions.
