One more ban and his chances of fighting at the Olympics will be gone.

Ashley has six months to prove that he is good enough to compete for Britain at the London Olympics. He needs to win a medal at the toughest international judo competitions in the world. He also needs to make sure his behaviour doesn’t let him down.
