Pacific International Judo Tournament – 2011

20 02 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:
 http://www.flickr.com/photos/dragonspeed/sets/72157625891666987/with/5432773987/

Here are a few pics from the tournament.
