ALL eyes will be on Olympic silver medallist Gemma Gibbons at the English Institute of Sport this weekend.

The 26-year-old will return to action in Sheffield on Sunday in the senior event of the 2013 British Championships. Gibbons, who got engaged to fellow London 2012 Olympian Euan Burton on New Year’s Eve, will compete in the 78kg category.

Gibbons said: “I’m really looking forward to returning after my time out through injury and it’ll be great to return in front of a home crowd.”

Nekoda Davis, aged 19, is the star attraction tomorrow as the juniors take centre stage. She is looking to retain her title in one of the strongest fields in the history of the tournament.
