Schoolgirl Amarah Peters is dreaming of one day competing at the Olympics after amassing an astonishing Judo medal haul.

Amarah, 13, from The Highcrest Academy in High Wycombe, only took up the sport two-and-a-half years ago. But in that time, she has won around 30 medals, most of them gold, in local and national competitions.

Her latest triumph came at British Judo Championships in December in Sheffield when she fought in the Pre Cadet -70kg category.

Amarah, currently a Green Belt who represents Micklefield Judo Club, won four consecutive fights to earn a gold medal and gained herself the title of British Pre Cadet Champion 2017.

“I felt proud and surprised because I had to fight people from all around the country,” she said.

“I want to get to the Olympics one day – and my trainers say it is realistic. Every week I train with black belts and I am working really hard to improve all the time.”

Sam Chraniuk, Senior Club Coach at Micklefield Judo Club, said: “Amarah's achievements to date have been fantastic, especially considering the relatively short period of time that she has been practicing judo and her young age."
