LIGHTNING Taekwondo’s young stars shone at the recent Ultimate 1-to-1 tournament in Barnsley.
Luke Cottle, five, Caitlin Brown, 8, Lewis Nicholas, Dane Greenwood and Jerry Atkinson, all 10, shocked their opponents, made up of the best young talents from across the country, to win golds and improve on Lightning’s already stunning season.
“I was proud of all my team, with their efforts, behaviour and determination,” said Dave Wishman, head coach at the club. “They all deserved their wins and were a credit to the Lightning Taekwondo Club, but moreso to themselves.”
John and Demi Malloy, aged 8 and 10, Jack Herring, 12, and 18-year-old Ashley Nicholas made up the successful nine-strong team, and more victories are sure to be just around the corner for this increasingly successful outfit.
