Sisters Stoll battle it out again at German Championships in Stuttgart
21 Jan 2018 20:05
At the second day of the German Championships in the SCHARRena in Stuttgart, five athletes successfully defended their title from the previous year. The most remarkable was the title for Theresa Stoll from TSV Großhadern who won gold U57kg just like last year.
Again just like last year, against her twin sister Amelie. In a mammoth final, European Vice-Champion Theresa Stoll prevailed after more than eight minutes of fighting time against U23 European Champion Amelie Stoll.
The Stoll sisters weren’t the only one who were successful. On Saturday the brothers Frey had an even better weekend as both captured the title. Karl-Richard U100kg and Johannes Frey +100kg.
Igor Wandtke from the judo team Hannover won the title for men U73kg. Dominic Ressel from TSV Kronshagen captured the German title again U81kg against Hannes Conrad.
Eduard Trippel from JC Rüsselsheim retained the title of last year in Duisburg. In the women’s category U63kg Martyna Trajdos from Eimsbütteler TV successfully defended the title.
Junior World Champion Giovanna Scoccimarro from MTV 1862 Vorsfelde, third in 2017, secured the gold medal U70kg.
No real surprises as eight winners of last year prolonged the gold.
