Anglia Ruskin University student Lucy Williams leads British Judo rankings

An Anglia Ruskin University student has risen to number one in British Judo’s official ranking list in her category following a string of notable successes.

Lucy Williams, who studies sport and exercise therapy, competes in the over 78kg category and has started the year as the top rated judoka.

Hampshire-raised Williams has gone from strength to strength since joining Anglia Ruskin in 2019, with her haul of medals including a pair of individual bronzes – as well as team silver and bronze – at the British Universities and Colleges Sports Championships.

The 21-year-old has also won gold medals at the English, Welsh and London Area Opens, and those results helped to facilitate her selection to the Senior European Team Championships.

Williams said: “I’m extremely proud to be ranked number one in Britain, it has taken a long time, a lot of hard work and a lot of support from my coach, Katrina McDonald.

“My next plan is to make my debut more widely on the European stage and compete in European opens this year.”

Williams is set to graduate from her course this summer.
