Judd won the Gibraltar Open, making him the first player to win SIX ranking titles in a season !

I know snooker not everyone's cup of tea, but, hey, it's LIVE SPORT !   :clap:

Made me think, how many Bristolian sportspeople are there performing at the top level away from football?

 

Judd Trump (snooker)

Lando Norris (F1)

Jenson Button (SuperGT Racing)

Chris Wood (Golf)

 

Just off the top of my head but theres got to be more than that surely?!?!

I can think of

Claudia Fragapane - Gymnast - won 4 golds in 2014 commonwealth games, and many medals since - potential Olympic place later in the summer

Sally Conway - British Judo champion - potential Olympic place later in the summer

Lily Owsley - Gold Medal Hockey player - still playing for England

*** Russ Conway was a great player in his day who had a number of records.

He played all the right notes in the right order.

Difficult to be 100% sure, but there is nothing recent of any events that she has taken part in

Seems to stop about 2018, but could be possibly injury related?

Good friends with my mother and father was old Trevor Stanford. Apparently I met him when I was a babe in arms, after one of his gigs back here in Bristol.
