Two Icelanders, Úlfur Böðvarsson and Árni Lund, medaled this year’s Swedish Open judo competition for Juniors and Cadets, RÚV reports. Úlfur won the gold medal in the Under 90 kg class, while Árni earned a bronze medal in the Under 81 kg group.

In addition to his gold medal, Úlfur received a special award at the end of the event for the best ippon, or one-shoulder throw, of the day.

Another Icelander, Grímur Ívarsson competed in the same group as Úlfur and nearly took the bronze, but was just edged out by his final opponent.
