Judo Alberta, the City of Edmonton and the province of Alberta are pleased to announce the successful bid to host the 2015 Pan Am Judo Championship. This prestigious international event will take place at the Saville Sports Centre in Edmonton on April 24 – 26, 2015.
With over 30 Pan American countries, 250 competitors and officials, this will be the highest level judo competition that Alberta has ever hosted and will include individual male and female weight divisions and a team competition.
The Championship is also a qualifier for the 2016 Brazil Olympics with many of the Canadian judo athletes using the competition to secure attendance in Brazil. During the London Olympic Games in 2012, Antoine Valois-Fortier of Quebec won a bronze in the -81kg men’s division.
