Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 7, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, May 7, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Ontario dominates Youth Judo championships Joe Meli tops in his division By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor A majority of the fcouse at the University of Leth- bridge Saturday evening came to see members of the Leth- bridge Judo Club compete in the Canadian Youth Judo championships. Well, in a fashion that has become more rule than excep- tion, the locals didn't let any- one down. The one-day competition, for boys 15-17 years of age, drew entries from, every province as well as the territories. Ontario, with a powerful con- tingent, dominated the affair but Joe Meli of Lethbrio'ge em- erged with the outstanding Judoka of the day as he cap- tured the 187-pound and under title over Denis Graham of On- tario. Meli Graham became old friends having to fight each represent our country in I h e other twice Saturday. Meli, who became one of Canada's youngest black Iselt holders in judo last year, lost his first fight of the day but battled back to win it aU in his weight class. Walter Lanz of British Co- lumbia was third behind Meli and Graham. A 10-member Canadian team was to have been selected to European judo championships in June but officials decided to wait until films of the Leth- bridge competition could be viewed before deciding on a team. Canada is the only non-Eu- ropean country invited to take part. It is almost a certainty that Meli, and possibly one or two other locals, will make the team. Me'i toured parts of Eu- rope last year with a Canadian high school team. A pair of brothers formerly of Raymond, Phil and Alan Takahashi, brought the crowd to the edges of their seats Sat- urday night as they forgot all about brotherly love in the fi- nal of the 127.6 pound division. The weight divisions in Satur- day's competition were differ- ent than usual as they were converted from kilos to pre- pare Canadians with the Euro- pean weight differences. Phil emerged the winner over Alan w bile Charles Landry placed third in Quebec colors. Two more Ontario Judoka met in the final of the 143- pound and under category with Ron Angus the winner over Da- vid Ryan. Daniel Hardy of Que- bec was third. Michel Jacob earned Quebec its only victory of the day as he won the 165-pound and un- der crown with a decisive win over Tim nirose of British Co- exception of Don Tsujiura, won at least one fight. Tsujuira ran into the sliffest competition of the day and lost a pair of narrow decisions. However, Tom Greenway left his mark by winning his first two fights before losing in the third round. He reached the quarter final before being dropped to the consolation side. Michael Calder, Guy Porao- hac, and Scott Tanner each chalked up victories Saturday. Meh' will now join Phil Illingworth, Greg Senda, Greig Wheeler, Guy Sunada and Dave Nishi to compete in the Cana- dian Open judo championships in Whitehorss, June 2. lumbia. Allen Cyr of Quebec was third. In the heavyweight drusion, 187 pounds and over, Norbert Cimborn of Ontario was the victor over teammate Frank Tomori in the final. Rick Per- rin of Ontario gave the eastern team, a clean sweep of the top three heavyweight platings. Five other members of the Lethbridge Judo Club took part in the affair and all, with the Day.
