Martin & Turner Win Bronze

fPanama City, Panama - Burnt Hills High School Graduate, Hannah Martin (28) and Alex Turner (24) from the Jason Morris Judo Center in Glenville turned in the performances of their career to date as they both won bronze medals at the Pan Am Judo Championships, April 28, 2017. Martin only lost an overtime thriller to Yanka Pascolino (Brazil) in the semis. Martin then defeated former 2x Pan Am Champ, Maricet Espinosa (Cuba) in a crazy crowd pleasing bronze medal bout which included multiple scores with a lot of action. This result moved Hannah's 63kg world ranking all the way up to #27 from #42. Martin adds this to her bronze in 2013 in her fifth Pan Ams. Turner went 3-1 on the day in his maiden trip to the Pan Ams with his only loss coming in the semis losing to Eduardo Araujo (Mexico). Like Martin, Turner lost an overtime thriller. Turner jumps up a whopping 29 slots in 73kg on the world ranking list up to a career high #35. Both Martin and Turner also represent the New York Athletic Club. "This was a tremendous performance by the kids" Commented JMJC Coach, Jason Morris. "Alex and Hannah put in so much effort in the dojo and it's showing on the field" 4x Olympian, Morris continued. The JMJC has now won 16 total medals at the Pan Am Championships in it's 16 year history.
