Two U.S. athletes climbed the podium at the Panamerican Masters competition in Buenos Aires.

Julian Prado of Coral Springs, FL, USA Judo’s Training Site at Ki-Itsu-Sai,  took a gold medal in his 66 kg division. Joe Ragan of Ridgewood, N.J., Kokushikai Judo Academy, took silver in his 81 kg. division.

“It was a great event overall,” said Ragan. “We went late into the evening.  Hundreds of competitors -  I’m not sure how many.  Julian finished at 10 p.m.”
