Euan Burton will make a final attempt to earn a seeded place at the London 2012 Games when he competes at the European Judo Championships
3 April 2012
...the final Olympic ranking list points scoring event – in Chelyabinsk, Russia (April 26 - 29).
Britain's three-times European bronze medallist and current Masters bronze medallist, currently world number 12 in the -81kg category, is targeting a place in the top eight on the Olympic ranking list.
A gold medal is worth 180 ranking points and together with favourable results from other judoka this would see Burton move to seventh on the Olympic ranking list before the qualification process ends on April 30.
It is their first selection as members of the Olympic Squad – the 28-strong talent pool from which the Olympic team will be selected.
