Hanks and fellow judoka fare well
Geoffrey Hanks of the Aberdeen Judo Club (AJC) won silver for Team B.C. at the Canadian Judo Championships, which were held on the weekend in Toronto.
The 12-year-old placed second in the under-15 male division.
Hanks' sister, Megan, 14, won bronze in the under-17 female division.
Also competing for AJC were Drew Ramsay and Liam Moss, both of whom were eliminated in preliminary matches, and Andrew Iadarola, an 18-year-old black belt who injured his chest in a first-round loss and was forced to withdraw from the championships.
