She took gold for the second year running at the Western Area Regional Schools Judo Championship.

Charlie hopes to make it a hat-trick in 2018, when she will be old enough to bet eligible for the British Schools Championships. Later this year Charlie will compete in and around Europe, including The Netherlands, Bosnia, Croatia and Portugal, for her club, Bradley Stoke Judo Club. Further triumphs include taking silver in The Hague, Holland at the IRJT Adidas Championships in November.
