London 2012: Colin Oates wants more medals in Olympic build-up
Norfolk judoka Colin Oates says he needs to build on his consistent performances by winning more medals.
The 28-year-old, who is expected to represent Britain in the under-66kg category in London 2012, finished fifth in the Paris Grand Slam at the weekend.
He told BBC Radio Norfolk: "In the past year, I've had some nice consistent results. The only disappointing thing is that I haven't won more medals.
"Hopefully I can get on a rostrum before the Games."
Oates was happy with his performance in France, but admitted his frustration at falling just short.
"It was a good day. I had three wins and one loss. I fought really well, which is pleasing," he said. "It's a bit disappointing as I had the chance to reach the semis, which would have given me a guaranteed bronze and a shot at the final.
"I had a little bit of a nearly moment as I did in France last year when I finished fifth."
