Jordan Gayle has returned to action in fantastic fashion this weekend securing a bronze medal in the -68kg class at the Austrian Open.

Gayle, who has had an injury-ridden 18 months and is targeting a place at next year’s Olympic Games, won three fights before narrowly losing in the semi finals.

He started the competition by easily outpointing Ondrej Cehlar from Slovakia 11-2 before going on to beat Viktor Jankovsky of the Czech Republic national team 3-2. In the quarter finals he won 8-3 against Konstantinos Konstantinidis before going down to the eventual winner, Slovenia’s Jure Panter 7-9.

Gayle is back in action again at the British National Championships in Manchester over the weekend of the 18th and 19th June.

Britain’s Aaron Cook also returned to winning ways after the disappointment of the World Championships last month.

Cook won gold in the -80kg division comprehensively defeating Ivan Trajkovic of Slovenia in the final, 22-10.

In the semi finals Cook defeated Nikolaos Tzellos of Greece 18-15 after defeating German Ahmadsei Ibrahim 9-1 and Tor Lovseth Waage of Norway 23-3.
