A group of four talented fighters from Ely’s Mark Farnham School came away with medals from the English Championships held in Worcester at the weekend.
More than 1,200 competitors converged on the Worcester Arena for the second biggest tae kwon-do event of the year, competing for medals in pattern, sparring, destruction and team sparring events.
And there were top finishes for four Ely students, including a first place in patterns for Christopher Le, who also scored a third place in sparring.
Robin Gilham came home second in the men’s green belt patterns and Abigail Hickman was third in girl’s black belt sparring.
Mark Farnham said: “To win any award at this event is a very serious achievement, so very well done to the students. We are now preparing for their next event which will be the Welsh Championships in Cardiff in May.”
