The athletes from Aachen can be proud of their weekend´s team result: The individual competitions already showed the skills of the 56-headed team because the RWTH students Isabel Schuldt and Rahel Krause won medals in their weight classes. Triumphs at the men´s competitions also became apparent. Erich Klinspon got German University Champion 2016 because of a “sparkling clean” performance in his weight class up to 66 kg. His teammates Arthur Westerkamp and Lars Entgens climbed the victory podium as well and finished up in second place.

The result of the individual competitions has been confirmed at the team competitions. The judokas from Aachen presented an united performance and could add further team medals to their individual medals. We congratulate on that outstanding team result with eight medals!
