Sarah Adlington Judo

Be the very best that you can be in everything you do. Strive to be better than you were yesterday and be driven to be better again tomorrow.

About me

My journey as an athlete has had lots of ups and downs. The ups have been brilliant and the downs not so great, but it is the way in which I have dealt with the downs with help from parents, friends and coaches that have made me into the person I am today.

I started judo the day before my 5th birthday at my local club and since then I haven’t looked back. I moved to Edinburgh over 10 years ago to become a full-time athlete and now call Edinburgh my home.
