Stroud Judo star Harry Lovell-Hewitt claimed silver at the Rome European Open.

Lovell-Hewitt, who claimed Commonwealth Games Bronze in August, said: “It feels great to get a second open medal this year, the first being in Bulgaria a few weeks ago and then this result in Rome gives me a big push in the world rankings and a lot of confidence that I can beat the tops boys going forward.

“I also take confidence in that I had a very close fight with the former world champ and Olympic silver medalist Asley Gonzalez, so that shows me I’m heading in the right direction.”
