Jack Hodgson believes his Rio 2016 experience will help bring the best out of him in the future.

The Gainsborough judoka finished fourth in the +100 category on his Paralympic Games debut in Brazil.

He narrowly missed out on bronze, losing in the final repechage but said he will learn from the competition.

He said: “It wasn’t the result I wanted, but it was an ok performance and better than I’ve done in the past, but it’s not good enough.

“The experience was good, I wanted a medal but I will learn from this and it will definitely spur me on to be better next time.”
