German Open beckons for Colin Judge

Rio hopeful Colin Judge heads off once again today in his quest to qualify for the 2016 Paralympics.  This time it’s to Bayreuth, Germany for the German Open.    

This is Colin’s first tournament since the Italian Open in Lignano last March.  This time he has been drawn in a group of 4 with Stephane Molliens (France,) Kim Kyung Mook (Korea) and Tomasz Jakimczuk (Poland.)  He needs to finish in the top 2 in the group to qualify for the knockout stages.

National coach Ronan Rooney is hopeful that the successes of early tournaments can continue saying this tournament affords Colin the opportunity to gain vital ranking points to move him closer to a Rio qualification slot.
