WKC Manchester - Points event 9/2/14

Posted by on February 10, 2014 at 12:25 PM

This competition is a major one as it is the WKC British Championships and with any medal won the fighter automatically qualifies for the WKC World Championships 2014 to be held in Portugal later in October, so there is a lot at stake.


The event, held at George H Carnall sports centre in Manchester was points fighting only and there will be the continuous British Championships in two weeks time back at the same venue.


Seven Peterborough Fighters took part in this event gaining an impressive 11 medals, with all seven fighters qualifying to fight in the worlds later in the year



I am very pleased with the way the evening Telegraph sports award finalist completed, all three collected a silver and a gold medal on the day, fighting in two categories each.


Freya Molloy easily won her final fight against last year's winner, Freya has improved immensely as a talent and dominated this fight!


Eddy Paddock's first round fight was against the Liverpool fighter that beat him in the World Championship final last year, he was very nervous going into this fight but came out victorious and went on to win a gold medal.


Chelsea Munday, in her first experience at the WKC Championships fought well to gain a silver in the -60kg girls 16-17 years.



Peterborough clubs other four fighters did well and all collected bronze medals which qualifies them for the world's this year


I am extremely proud of this group of fighters, individually they done very well but as a team they are encouraging each other and training hard together, 2014 is going to be a good year for Peterborough BCKA.



Next week we take two teams to Peterborough series in Werrington and WAKO Championships in Birmingham, all these competitions are fine tuning our fighters for The Irish Open on 1st and 2nd of March in Dublin, the largest martial arts tournament in Europe.
