Remember the fad years of Pokemon and all that came with it, good and bad? Remember when people used to fight over valuable cards? Well, it looks like something good may have come out of it after all.
The Daily Mail tells the tale of how UK Olympic judo hopeful Ashley McKenzie took up the sport. Long story short: as a youth, he tried to get a Charizard card back from a kid who stole it from him. The kid defeats him with a judo throw. Impressed, McKenzie does some research on the Internet, takes up judo, and the rest is history. I wish him the best of luck.
Wonder if he ever got another Charizard card?
