This Sunday at 10:00 AM the New York Open Judo Championship will be held at the New York Athletic club in NYC. This is the 26th year the NYAC has put on the tournament that draws some of the top athletes in the United States as well as the world. Top Americans will be Nick Delpopolo, Travis Stevens and Garry Leger. If you happen to be in NYC, go cheer them on. Here is what Nick Delopolo said on his facebook page about the tournament at the New York Athletic Club.
“Getting excited to compete in New York City this weekend! All are welcome to attend! NYAC does it up right with a live DJ, food and refreshments, live commentator, film crew and chanting crowds! If you live in the NYC area.. don’t miss it!” Sounds like a good time for a Sunday!
Can’t wait to hear how it goes and see some video.
In other pre Olympic news this week’s Sports Illustrated has an article about Kayla Harrison and her road to London and her goals coming up. Nice to see some of the smaller sports getting out there in the mainstream sports world.
Have a great Judo weekend everyone!
