Kimberley & Louise Renicks

On the opening day of the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, judo player Kimberley Renicks beat her Indian opponent Sushila Likmabam in the 48kg category. Some 45 minutes later, her sister Louise triumphed against England's Kelly Edwards in the 52kg event. Within the space of an hour, the siblings from Coatbridge had won Team Scotland's first gold medals of the Games, fulfilling a dream that had been years in the making.

Nine months on, Sports For Champions catch up with the stars as they prepare for international competitions that could pave the way to next summer's Olympics in Rio. Louise is based in Glasgow and Kimberley stays with their parents, Thomas and Agnes, in Coatbridge. When not training or competing, they work part-time as coaches in schools and clubs as well as giving motivational talks across the country.

Both sisters are very inspirational in schools and give a fantastic visual demonstration which is not to be missed!!
