Amy took out both awards at the recent Maccabi NSW soiree and left Mum, Kathy, to receive the accolades. Amy is currently on the holiday of a lifetime taking a well deserved break from the sport that she loves, Judo. After speaking to Amy it is very clear she has more dreams than memories and Judo is part of her future. Judo became an addiction from a very early age after accompanying her cousin to her first Judo session just to keep him company. Little did she know at the time that Judo would become so contagious and part of her life ever since.

Amy says, “Thank heavens one of the things you learn first is to fall properly to avoid getting hurt or injured. These techniques become second nature so I have been pretty much injury free. The big picture for the future is competing for Australia in the Olympics.” Amy was ranked No. 2 in Australia (April 2010) for both Under 48kg Young Women’s and Senior Women’s division. Amy is keeping in shape while on her trip, and is hopeful of regaining her National ranking on her return. Amy was genuinely thrilled that Judo has been put in the spotlight and welcomes the publicity to a rather unfamiliar sport amongst women.
