Having achieved the number one place on the Cadet ranking list earlier in the year,
Harry Lovell-Hewitt was selected by Great Britain to compete in the under 81 kilo category
at the European Youth Olympics held in Tbilisi, Georgia.
Stroud Coach Richard said Harry fought really well  and was unlucky to pick up a minor penalty early in his fourth fight.
Despite a tremendous amount of pressure he put on his opponent he was unable to convert his efforts to a score.
This meant Harry was denied a chance to fight for a bronze medal and had to settle for a well earned 7th place.
A great achievement for his first event at this level.
All four of Harry's fights can be seen on youtube by entering: EYOF Tbilisi 2015 Day 4
