Ontario's top under 20 athletes faired extremely well on the second half of their European Tour. Four of Ontario's best U20 athletes spent two weeks training and competing in Germany and Turkey. The German tournament is one of the hardest competitions in Europe for U20 athletes. Most divisions have more than fifty athletes competing.

In Istanbul, Turkey, Ontario won two medals and had one 5th place finish. Lukasz Mozdzen won a silver medal in the -90 kg division, while Kelita Zupancic won a bronze medal in the -70 kg category. Renee Guggino just missed out on the medals with a very impressive 5th place finish. In addition, Andrea Madgett also competed, however, she finished out of the medals.
