Bath student Ben Fletcher could be off to Rio after a seventh place finish at the European judo championships.

The competition in Russia on Saturday saw the 24 year old's best performance at a senior major championship to date, leaving him ranked 29th in the world in his category.

There's only one month left to qualify for the 2016 games and Ben's coach Juergen Klinger believes a Team GB place is almost secure.
