British Judo boss Colin McIver is confident of winning medals at this week's World Championships in Cairo.

Britain have named a strong squad, including six Olympians, for the event which starts on Thursday.

Performance director McIver said: "We have a line-up which combines established names with newer talent.

"We hope to continue the momentum of a successful European Championships. The team have experience at a world level and are capable of achieving results."

The players will travel to Cairo trying to match the three medals won at the 2003 World Championships.

In Japan, Craig Fallon took the silver medal in the Men's under 60kg category, and Karina Bryant won two medals, a bronze in the Women's over 78kg category and silver in the Open category.

This will be the fourth senior World Championships for 26-year old Bryant, who has won at least one medal in each previous appearance.

In May she became European Champion for the fourth time.

Seven members of the team are making their senior World Championship debut.

They include Commonwealth champion Samantha Lowe and Junior World medallist Peter Cousins.
