Junior black belt, 13 year old Max Whitley and 15 year old black tag George Hanchant were entered in the junior divisions, Max on Saturday and George on Sunday. Success was not really expected as Max was not only at the younger end of his group, he was also in the lightest group, the under 52kg, and weighing just 41kg he was also the lightest. Max firstly had his pattern event where the competitors had to perform a pattern of their choice from their black belt grade 1 of 3 to choose from and then the judges would give them one to perform from a possible 11 others. Competitors had to really know all their patterns and remember them under immense pressure. With 32 in his group Max had a battle on his hand. He won through round after round before ending up in the final against South Africa. In his sparring event he was up against the USA in the first round. This lad was the biggest in his division but after 2 rounds Max won unanimously. Not so lucky in his next fight with another split decision going against him so no medal this time.

However she more than made up for this set back with her efforts in the team events:. The whole crowd was backing the Aussies for gold.
I don't know if it's worse for us: For me, it's been an inner battle with myself, should I follow my husband or should he follow me as I am one year ahead. I have been doubting if this relationship is going to work because I hardly ever talk to him so my first reaction is okay who else is he seeing??. When we started dating, he was in his fellowship.
