11/3/11 – Junior World Championships 2011, South Africa
This is the toughest Jr. tournament in the world. These are the highest heights, further than Wolf Judo has ever been before.
Both our boys fight in the 73kg division on Friday 11/4. For those of us on Central time, we can watch Andrew Varga and Max Schneider fight live on www.ippontv.org, starting at 2AM on Friday morning.
The match draw for the tournament was published on Wednesday. Andrew “Boogie” Varga got a bye in the first round and then fights the winner of the South Africa / Belgium match in the second round. Max Schneider drew Max Stewart from Great Britain for his first round. Stewart recently finished 2nd at the European Jr Championships. There’s only room for one Max in 73kg and that’s Schneider!
