Gold, silver and bronze medals lift for East York Tae Kwon Do Club
9:20am Tuesday 24th December 2013 in Sport
EAST York Tae Kwon Do Club will head into 2014 in great heart after enjoying gold, silver and bronze medal success at the British Championships in Cardiff, writes Toby Latham.
The final event of the year capped off a fine 2013 for the club which is less than three years old but now boasts world, British and English champions.
Maxwell Griffin took gold in the boys’ green belt category, while Sarah Sharp won silver in the girls’ blue heavy class and Nathaniel Pilgrim and Ollie Richardson did likewise in the boys’ yellow tag team category.
Bronze medals were won by Richardson in the boys’ yellow light class, Brad Lightfoot in the boys’ blue peewee, and instructor Gavin Cook, a second Dan, in the men’s black light heavy class.
Cook said: “It was a fantastic result and I am very proud of all of them. They all worked extremely hard and it’s great to finish the year with some silverware.”
The club hold training sessions at Helmsley and Stamford Bridge and are set to expand into Beverley and Bishop Burton next year.
