GLENVILLE — Seven Athletes from the Jason Morris Judo Center (JMJC) in Glenville have qualified to compete for the USA Team in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on April 26-27 at the Pan American Judo Championships.

The Pan Ams allow athletes to earn points on the world rankings toward qualifying for the Paris Olympics. JMJC also had seven athletes qualify for the event last year, with Hannah Martin and Nate Keeve winning bronze medals.

Martin will make her eighth appearance at the Pan Ams at 63kg, with her best results being bronze medals in 2013, 2017, 2019, and 2023. Keeve will head to his fifth Pan Ams at 100kg, with his best results being bronzes in 2021 and 2023. Nicole Stout will also be competing in her fifth Pan Ams at 78kg.
