Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 24-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD August 21, 1974 Local judokas shine in recent tournament By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer Three weeks of intensive early morning training appears to have paid off in spades for three young Lethbndge judokas who recently took part in the Canadian Junior Olympics and the International Youth Judo Championships Joe Meh Tom Greenway, and Guy Pomahac spent three weeks starting their day at 6 a m with an hour and a half of hard training and ended up coming home with a lot of hardware from the Junior Olympics in Edmonton and the Youth championships in Toronto All three took gold medals in their divisions at the Edmonton Olympics, with Greenway winning the heavyweight division (187 pounds and over) while Meh took the light heavyweight crown (187 pounds and under) and Pomahac bested all comers in the middleweight division (165 pounds and under) Then the boys, along with coach Yosh Senda flew to Toronto for the International Youth tournament, August 16 and 17 and competed with the best judokas from the United States, France and Finland In that tournament Greenway bested some 20 other heavyweights while Meh took top spot in a light heavyweight division of 30 competitors Pomahac narrowly missed winning his middleweight sector when he lost a referee s decision bout to the eventual winner in the first round That winner is also the 1974 American Athletic Union champion, so Guy had no easy time of it The match ended in a tie and was referred to the two judges for a decision They split their votes and officials had to resort to the opinion of the referee before Pomahac finally found out he had lost He then went undefeated in the repecharge event (for competitors who have lost to the winner) and wound up in third spot To put the icing on the cake for coach Senda both Meh and Greenway were selected to Canadian teams which will compete internationally this fall The Judo Canada Selection Committee picked Meh as its top middlweight representative on the five-man team which will compete in the First World Junior Championships in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil September 14-15 Joe ranks as a middleweight jn world competition due to the different weight- ranking system than is used within Canada And Greenway was picked to Canada's five-man team which will compete in the Invitational European Championships at Munich, Germany on November 16 Coach Senda sees the boys'outstanding performance as part of a trend in Alberta particularly, and in Canada in general, towards a better calibre of judo Alberta tied British Columbia for first place in the Junior Olympic judo team he says "And that marks the first time we have ever beaten Ontario Talking about the International tournament in Toronto, Senda stresses, 'The boys were up against the best competition the United States and France could muster 'The Americans had their national team there Not only did Canada compete, but they defeated the Americans in the team standings for the two-day affair And with judokas like Meh, Greenway and Pomahac around, Southern Alberta is obviously doing its part to improve Canada's standing internationally Senda jokingly admits that he has a regret about the boys, especially Meh and Greenway, doing so well Now those two aren't eligible to represent Southern Alberta in the Canada Winter Games And I thought we would sweep the whole thing The boys participation in the international tournaments this fall excludes them from competing next February in Lethbndge 'But the competition has to be good for them Senda adds And who knows9 If they do well during the next year, they might end up in Montreal in 1976 Outstanding performance Recently returned from judo triumphs
