Whitehorse siblings Daniel and Mackenzie Tonner hit the mat and then the podium over the weekend.
The Tonners won medals at the Canada West Judo Invitational in Burnaby, B.C., on Saturday. Both were fighting up a division.
For Daniel, who won silver, it was two podium visits in a row. The 10-year-old won four straight matches to win gold at the Steveston Judo Tournament in Richmond, B.C., three weeks ago.
“It was fun,” said Daniel. “I made a few mistakes in a couple of my fights. I fought someone I fought at Steveston and I beat him the same way.”
Daniel, who is a yellow-orange belt at Whitehorse’s Shiroumakai Judo Club, went 3-1 for silver in the U12 34-37 kilograms division.
Mackenzie won one and lost two to take bronze in the U12 25-30 kilograms division in Burnaby.
The white belt is in just her first season of judo and trains at the Northern Lights Judo Club in Whitehorse.
Daniel won a pair of silvers and Mackenzie a gold at the Golden Horn Judo Championships in Yukon in October to start the season.
“I like practising with the other kids and going to the tournaments out of town,” added Daniel.
