Yana Rattigan medalled in the tough Kiev International Tournament, something not achieved by GBR for many years. Yana fought hard to gain her 3rd Place Bronze in this prestigious event, so congratulations to her.
There were 19 athletes in Yana’s weight category. She won two matches before defeat by the eventual winner (who was the silver medal winner of 2009 World Championships). This placed her in the repechage, where after a further 2 wins, (one against Balushka Ldmyla who recently beat Yana to Bronze in the World Championships 2009,) Yana was placed in the Bronze position.
Mohammadali faced a field of 40 athletes, winning two matches before losing to the 74K eventual bronze medallist.
An impressive performance by the two athletes!
