Olympic bronze medallist Sally Conway may now live in Scotland but she began her judo career at the age of eight at her local club in Thornbury

The Bristol-born fighter defeated Austria’s Bernadette Graf to finish third in the under-70kg competition

“It hasn’t sunk in,” she told BBC Sport. “I knew if I was going to come away with a medal I would have to put in my best performances.

“I’m not from Brazil but the crowd have been awesome. I just want to thank everyone.”
