Pacific International Judo Tournament – 2011

Pacific International Judo Tournament
Steveston Judo Club
Richmond, BC, Canada

Over 140 top class athletes came from Canada, USA, and Japan. Competition was fierce and the Judo – nothing short of thrilling!

The tournament was open to Green belt and up – No Juniors. It still ran for almost 8 hours!  I can’t believe I actually got the photos all processed and posted within a day! I took over 600 photos and ended up with about 75 that I’m happy with.

The whole set can be seen at my Flickr:

Vancouver Open Judo Tournament – 2011

10 02 2011
I was out at the Vancouver open Judo tournament last weekend and did a bit of shooting.
This is the first time that ANY Judo tournament was held in the new Olympic Oval. The light was great and it was a real pleasure to get out and shoot there. So much better than so many of the dark gymnasia that many competitions occur within. I was actually able to get the ISO as low as 2500!!! The full set is on my Flickr at:

Here are a few pics from the tournament.

Like Judo, speed skating, the original design of the building, requires the human machine to be functioning at full capacity
