Winston Gordon - Going For Olympic Gold


Two time Olympic Judo competitor Winston Gordon talks about the London 2012 Olympics and fighting on such a global stage, the multitudes of injuries endured by high level Judokas, the feeling of winning the Commonwealth games in 2002, how a strong character keeps him competing at age 35, and why it’s important to teach Judo to young children in his community.
