A massive congratulations goes to our club member Ruby Hunt this month, who won a gold medal in Cyprus on Sunday 5th of May, at the prestigious World Karate Federation Youth League K1, which is karate’s equivalent of the world premier league.
Ruby had to win 5 tough fights for the gold medal, beating Cyprus 11-1, Russia 2-1, Greece 6-2, Russia 3-0 and USA 4-3. She fought in the 12-13 year old -42kg category and received a black eye along the way for her trouble.
Ruby has a busy year ahead defending her title as English and British Champion and competing for a place in the England Team going to the World Championships in Chile this October! Good luck Ruby – we will keep you all posted with her achievements.
We would also like to say a huge thank you to one of our club sponsors, ISElectrical.co.uk, not only have they made a generous donation to club funds, but have also donated a large number of club branded sports water bottles which we now have for sale on our website, the proceeds from the sales are boosting club funds further! We are truly very grateful for your continued support.
