Franziska Lomb Hessian Champion for the fourth time in a row

Petersberg (oz / pf) – At the Hessian judo individual championship for the U15 age group, 100 young Hessian judoka fought for the best placements in front of the national trainer Dominik Riedel. And Franziska Lomb from the 1st Fulda Judo Club secured the Hessian championship for the fourth time in a row.

For the young judoka it was the first test of strength since March 2020. The tournament preparation took place for the athletes under difficult conditions, because contact sports were not possible for months due to corona measures, the sports halls were closed and the club training was limited to online offers or training plans of the clubs. The athletes were very nervous when they first walked onto the mat.

In the morning the female youth started first. Franziska Lomb implemented what she had worked out with her trainer Mike Thiel in the last few weeks and won the gold medal with four premature victories in the -52kg weight class, thus securing the title of Hessian champion for the fourth time in a row. In the final against her national team training partner Juliane Benz from SG Egelsbach 1874 eV, Lomb was able to achieve victory after almost two minutes of fighting time by using a hold technique on the ground. With her placement she qualifies for the Southwest German Individual Championship, where she can compete against the medal winners of the Saarland, Hesse, Rhineland and Palatinate associations in Saarbrücken next weekend.

In the afternoon the male youth got into the competition. Paul-Luca Strohte and Mats Brus started in the -50kg weight class with 15 participants. They were able to keep up technically well and sometimes fought up to the golden score. Ultimately, however, they lacked a bit of luck to win. “If you continue to train so diligently, you will have a say or two about the medals in future tournaments,” summed up coach Mike Thiel, who coached and supervised the Fulda athletes that day.

Special thanks went to the judo club Petersberg as the host, which held the tournament despite the difficult Corona conditions and thus gave the young judoka the opportunity to do their sport. It was a very good and well thought-out event.
