All-or-nothing judo for Arnie

ARNIE Dickins will be out to impress his family on both sides of the world today.

The 20-year-old English-born Dickins faces an all-or-nothing judo elimination clash in the less than 60kg class.

The Queenslander, who is ranked 28th, will come to grips with 16th ranked Georgian Betkili Shukvani in the opening round.

Should he win, Dickins would face either Neuso Sigauque (119th) from Mozambique or Solomon Islander Tony Lomo (69th).
