11 – 12 February – Croatian Open

Great weekend at the Croatian Open this weekend with 5 members from Team Bristol.

Everyone fought so well and had so many fights against top international competitors across Europe. Once again everyone from the team came away with a medal. Big well done to:

Cory Cook – Gold and Bronze
Hayden Challenger – Gold, Silver and 2 x Bronze
Liam Holden – Silver and Bronze
James Baker – Bronze

Very proud of them, with all the effort and will power they put in. Some long old days but well worth it! Well done guys… onto the next one!

4 – 5 February – Athens Challenge

Another great weekend at the Athens Challenge with Team Bristol and WAKO GB.

We only took a small team with us but everyone of them fought well over ten fights over the two days against a lot of the top European kids out there. So many Bulgarians, Russians, Italians and Greeks just to name a few of the countries, but the experience gained was second to none! There were also some excellent results. Very well done to:

Rio Williams – 4 x Gold and 1 x Bronze
Hayden Challenger – 3 x Gold and 2 x Bronze
Jack Sowersby – 2 x Gold and 1 x Bronze

We also entered a team in the younger cadets (10-12yrs) with two 9yr olds and we fought brilliantly, making it to the final of the sheet but losing out to some very big top Italians, so earning a very well deserved bronze team medal

Well done to everyone. A great weekend yet again.
