This year’s tournament theme was “JUDO No Limits”, brought to life with a riveting cultural presentation by Poet - Adrian Greene. The tournament started promptly at 10.00 am with the parade of teams featuring one hundred and fourteen athletes from six participating countries; Curacao, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Suriname, Trinidad & Tobago and host country Barbados.

The championship was declared officially open by Professor Caddle.
The competition amongst the judokas who displayed a range of techniques and deliberate skills was extremely keen, resulting in ninety-five percent Ippons overall. This high level of competition was evident in both the senior and junior weight categories.
When the curtains came down on the tournament Barbados retained the first place trophy accruing seventeen gold, seventeen silver and sixteen bronze medals. In second place was Guadeloupe; six gold, nine silver and one bronze medal while third place went to Curacao; six gold, two silver and three bronze medals.
