Report of the European Championships 2000 in Wroclaw Day 2

On the next day Georgina Singleton added one more in the -52kg. First up was the Belgian, Inge Clement, and Singleton spun her on a mid-air-sixpence to counter a seoi-nage attack with a whipping te-guruma for ippon.

Four times she charged at Singleton only to be thrown with left seoi-nage on each occasion. Three of those earned small scores but still the Spaniard didn't catch on. In fact the end buzzer came as a bit of a relief for the beleaguered Leon. Read more
