    JUDO ACE SAM INGRAM BECOMES COLLEGE’S SECOND MEDALLIST

    September 5th, 2012

    SAM INGRAM became Loughborough College’s second medallist in the Paralympic Games last night when he claimed a silver in the 90kg judo.

    The 27-year-old former College student, who now lives in Edinburgh, took up the sport six years ago on the advice of his brother Joe, 30, who also has Loughborough College on his CV.

    Joe was knocked out in the 100kg quarter finals yesterday but Sam restored family pride by winning through to the final where he was watched by another famous former Loughburian Lord Sebastian Coe, chairman of LOCOG.

    Sam defeated Argentinian veteran Jorge Lencina to make the final where he was eventually beaten by Cuban Jorge Hierrezuelo Marcillis.

    This was his second Paralympic medal, having claimed a bronze in Beijing four years ago.

    Both brothers were born with a genetic eye condition called conal dystrophy and have no central vision.

    Sam played goalball at school before turning to judo as his brother was already progressing in the sport.
