BURNT HILLS — Burnt Hills High School graduate, Hannah Martin (34) from Glenville, NY, will be bringing home a bronze medal from the Romanian Open at the 63kg weight class. In only her fourth event since returning to the Judo tour after having a baby, Martin reached the podium for the 16th time at the professional level. Martin’s only loss came in a quarterfinal to Malin Fischer (Germany), who needed overtime to get the victory. This result brings Martin’s world ranking up to #52. Martin will compete next week at the Hungarian Grand Slam in Budapest, Hungary and will be joined by Jason Morris Judo Center teammates, Ari Berliner (23) who competes at 66kg and Nate Keeve (26) who competes at 100kg. All the points earned from now on will go directly towards qualifying for the summer Olympics in Paris in 2024.
