Taking Stock - Judo champion still runs away.

London Transport accountant Owen Blagrove is not someone to pick a fight with. The 33-year-old is a black-belt judo champion and has just carried home a gold trophy after scooping the Irish Open Judo Championship in Dublin. But bean-counters of a nervous disposition need not worry. Since starting the sport aged nine, Blagrove has never used judo in anger – or even in self-defence. ‘The best defence is still running,’ he says.
