Nathan and Josh have now returned from the Senior World Championships and are currently completing their two weeks quarantine. They want me to pass on their thanks to all who have reached out to them, who have purchased Team Katz Tee-Shirts and who have made generous donations through the Australian Sports Foundation going towards the costs of them participating in Olympic and Commonwealth Games qualifying events. Official announcements for Olympic qualification are still to me made by the IJF. Although the boys fought for a medal in the Asia-Oceania Continental Championships and also fought at probably their highest level at the Senior World Championships winning one match each and having very close matches with much higher ranked opponents in their next round, their Olympic Qualification points are just below what is required to make the cut-off for their respective divisions.  So the boys will take a well-earned rest from the mat to recover from numerous battle-damage injuries and then continue on their journeys.  We are immensely proud of their amazing effort and growth both on and off the mat during this Olympic cycle and how they have carried themselves through tough times. Although very disappointed, their motivation is unphased and no doubt bigger things are still in store for them. At a later date, I may still provide a “blow-by-blow” of their 4 matches at the Worlds for those interested.
