Delpopolo Departs For 3 Weeks Abroad
September 29, 2011
Glenville, NY Nick Delpopolo left today for Liverpool, England to compete in the Liverpool World Cup. This begins a 3 week tour for the #1 ranked American as he will then head to Azerbaijan to compete in the Baku World Cup and finally Abu Dhabi for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Nick has never competed at the Liverpool or Azerbaijan World Cups, He captured a bronze in Abu Dhabi last year, becoming the first American male medalist in that event.
Nick relocated to upstate NY after competing in the 2011 World Team Championships to reconnect with long time coach Jason Morris at the Jason Morris Judo Center. Morris coached Nick from the ages 12-19 and is thrilled that Nick chose to gear up for the London Olympic Games back at the JMJC. “Nick has been looking great and we have made some minor adjustments to his game to help prepare him for these next 3 events.” Commented Morris, he continued saying “Our goal right now is for him to qualify for the World Masters Championships in January.”
