It is with some sadness that I need to report that Tiff Day, Olympian, and former Judo coach at BBRD died on Wednesday at the home of her parents in Pittsworth. Tiff was 29.
Tiff was always known for her energy, humour, dedication and excellence in both her professional sphere as a nurse practitioner and in the dojo. On a more personal level, she helped restore my faith in the Judo community after a particularly trying time, and was instrumental in coaching Brady Albrand to achieving a Bronze at the Uni Games in 2013.
Our thoughts are with Tiff’s parents Robin and Deb, and all of her extended family and friends, including both Jack B and Wooram C who are members of both BBRD and the Pittsworth Judo community.
As yet, there are no firm details regarding a funeral service or family wishes for the most appropriate memorial. Craig Hindmarsh, President of the Pittsworth Judo Club is the primary point of contact for information and passing on any condolences to her family. When more details are available, I will of course pass them on as soon as have them.
