Joshua won gold in both 60kg and open weight competition to emerge the best male in Judo.
“I give God thanks an glory. At first I didn’t believe I will make it to the finals. This is my first time participating in police games. I came out from camp in July. Training and seeing myself being released for the games was a surprise for me.”
“I have been training for Judo for about 10 years now. I have taken part in sports festivals and couple of championships but this is my first gold medal. And I feel super excited having it on my neck”, Joshua said.
In the female category, Vivian Oko, representing Zone 2 emerged overall best. Oko fought in the 78+kg and open weight and won gold in both categories.
