BUENOS AIRES: Rhys Allan and Saskia Brothers have been selected as Australia’s judo contingent for the Buenos Aires 2018 Youth Olympic Games, bringing Australia’s total to 65 young athletes across 22 sports.Allan says earning his spot at YOG was “hard fought…literally” having to climb a long ladder of opponents.“After a couple of months competing in Europe and at the Continental Championships, I was sitting at ninth on the YOG ranking table and I knew to directly qualify for a place at Buenos Aires, I needed to get into the top five,” the Perth local said.
