Mateja Glusac won the under-100kg event for his third BUCS individual gold with victory over Loughborough University’s Rhys Thompson.

It led to Anglia Ruskin taking the most individual wins of all universities competing in the judo section.
There was also a silver medal earned by Adam Adaman in the under-81kg category, while Anglia Ruskin took home the bronze medal in the team championship, with Wolverhampton taking gold.
Martin Beaver, head of Sport and Active Anglia, said: “Anglia Ruskin University has a reputation for excellence in judo and once again our young judokas had a very successful weekend in Sheffield.
“It is always a pleasure to see them competing at such a high level against the best students in the UK.”
