/ Nikita Tsyruk – Judo

Nikita competes competitively in Judo events with GP Martial Arts Club House. In 2020 COVID-19 closed most athletic clubs, but it did not stop Nikita from practicing his passion. By working at home and reaching out to his coach, Carlos Grisales, for advice Nikita continually developed his abilities. Though he did not compete as much as he usually does, Nikita has shown outstanding results in personal athletic development.  Nikita’s success for 2020 include:

Edmonton International Judo Championships – Nikita won the Gold Medal, in weight category of 60 to 66 kg in the U14 division
