Edinburgh Judo Club’s Sarah Adlington returned from her 12-month injury nightmare to claim a silver medal at the British Judo Open in London yesterday.

The 26-year-old missed out on the Olympics and had not competed since last April’s European Championships, but she stormed through to yesterday’s over-78kg final where she lost by ippon to Frenchwoman Rebecca Ramainich.

Adlington’s club-mate Chris Sherrington also grabbed a medal in the 100kg heavyweight class, topping Pool B and holding down Israel’s Asaf Zohar in the bronze medal match.
