Pittsworth judo competitor prepares for Olympics

Pittsworth judo competitor prepares for Olympics
An 18-year-old university student from Pittsworth on southern Queensland's Darling Downs will represent Australia at the Beijing Olympics in Judo.

Tiffany Day is studying pharmacy at Griffith University on the Gold Coast, and says she is excited to be representing the country at such a high level.
Tiffany says she she became involved in the sport because her parents played tennis and the judo hut was next door.
She says it is tough preparing for the Games in Australia.
"Overseas they're all professional, [they] do it twice a day every day," she said.
"It is just a recreational sport here, so we have to catch up with them.
"Ideally you should be training every day, but we can't, so we have to run as well, do weights and try to get four sessions of judo a week, five sessions a week, I find that very hard."
