LEGENDARY Pinewood Judo Club Sensei Don Werner passed away peacefully last night.

Werner, who was in his 80s, produced countless national and international champions, including Olympic silver medallist and World Champion Nicola Fairbrother and World bronze medallist Karen Roberts amongst many others.

However, one of his biggest achievements was his record in the junior nationals, where Pinewood has taken medals at every event since 1968.

Werner won the sports champion award in last year's Pride of Bracknell Awards.
