British Judo Open 2001
I was thrilled to see Nicolas Gill of Canada at the British Open especially as I never took as many photos of him in action at the World Judo Championships as I would have liked. Now was my chance and I was not going to miss it. I think I got every Ippon from this supreme athlete. Look carefully through the pictures that follow and you wont be disappointed.
Gill received a penalty against him for passivity within the early stages of the final fight. See the clock in the photo. This motivated Gill into action and then produced one of the most spectacular Kata-Guruma (shoulder wheel) of the British Judo Open. Winning him the Gold medal.
