Ex-Lion Beattie tamed by 57kg Ramsay
- From the section Scotland
What happens when 102kg former British & Irish Lion John Beattie decides to spar with 57kg judo star Connie Ramsay? Beattie takes to the mats at Judo Scotland's Ratho headquarters with Commonwealth Games hopeful Ramsay for some lessons.
(Only later did Ms Ramsay mention that her opponent's unorthodox takedowns would have resulted in his disqualification... And perhaps it was modesty that prevented her telling her exhausted student that she is the highest-placed British woman in the under-57kg category in the International Judo Federation's rankings.)
