Jodie Caller is 22 years old and is a Great Britain Judo athlete from Nether Heyford. Her judo career started when she was 8 years old. She has been part of the Great Britain squad and competing internationally since she was 14 years old. In 2016, she unfortunately tore her ACL at the European University Games in Croatia. Jodie had an operation and 2 years of recovery to get back to competitive judo. Jodie is now back to competing at the level she was before the injury and is continuing her judo career. Jodie has also been competing alongside studying and is now pleased to have graduated with a first class degree in Sports Coaching Practice from the University of Wolverhampton. She will now be dedicating the next 12 months to her judo career.
Her previous judo results include: 7 x British Champion | European University Games Champion | Cadet European Championships – Bronze medal | Several times European Cup Medallist
Jodie has funded her way through these competitions over the last year to get herself into the top 3 in the country, but the next goal is to medal at The Commonwealth Games in 2022. Each trip cost approximately £300 for her to attend. In order to qualify for the big tournaments, Jodie has to compete at various events around the world in order to gain enough points to be eligible for selection. Jodie receives no funding support from UK sport or the British judo association. Jodie is looking for any donations to help her to self-fund to these events to continue her extensive judo career. Any donations will be greatly appreciated. For more information visit:
