National Youth Championships, Chesterfield

Well done! to Meleri, Steve B and Anya, who competed at the National Youth Championships in Chesterfield on Saturday 3rd July. They all performed well, and came away with even more medals and trophies! Meleri righted a wrong from the Welsh Champs, repeating the same kata and winning gold in the individual girls black belt kata. Anya did well in the individual girls brown belt kata, taking silver after narrowly missing out on gold by only 0.1 point, and the team kata were narrowly beaten in the finals, winning themselves a 3rd place and some bronze medals. Steve missed out on a place in the individual boys black belt kata after losing in the eliminations against some very strong opposition.
