Tami Goto and Sydney Edgson have been practicing judo for almost their entire lives and now are getting an opportunity to compete internationally. They were selected to represent BC at a judo competition in London, England this weekend. To go on the trip, the two had to each put forward $3000, which is not an easy task for teenagers dedicating time to school and their sport. To raise the funds, the girls received corporate sponsorship and designed an "I love Judo" t-shirt. They've already sold 100 shirts and have 150 more on the way. Goto and Edgson fly to the United Kingdom on Wednesday to get ready for the tournament.
