(Montreal—November 4, 2016) High Tech junior Alejandro Leon, a resident of North Bergen, returned from a devastating knee injury to vie for glory at the Quebec Open Judo Tournament, announced Dr. Joseph Giammarella, Principal of High Tech High School.
Scheduled for November 5th, the Quebec Open Judo Tournament will test Leon’s mettle. Leon had torn his medial collateral ligament (MCL), which forced him out of competition in past tournaments.
“Instead of competing last year,” says Leon, “I supported my teammates on their road to a gold medal.”
This year, however, Leon will be competing in the U21 66kg division representing Tech Judo, High Tech’s own judo club.
“It’ll be a tough experience,” Leon adds, “but, hopefully, it is a good turnout.”
Leon trained intensely during his recovery, waiting for just the right moment to compete again.
