Maggie wins gold

 BKO took a team to the Cimac world cup in Birmingham.

This is one of the hardest fought tournaments in the Superleague circuit.

Maggie Brown entered the girls advanced division. Using her strong front leg kicks and follow up punching she powered her way through several rounds beating the British champion on the way. In the final Maggie met the World champ and after a short while was 5-1 down. It looked to be all over, but Maggie found extra strength and continued to attack her opponent with kicks. She pulled back point after point and at the final bell she won by 9-6.

Nicole Langley continued her winning performances by earning first place here. It was by no means a foregone conclusion and Nicole had to get through some tough bouts, but her timing and accurate punching won her the trophy.

Michelle Rees Got silver in the ladies section as did Liz Ferioli in the light continuous class

George Hine gained a Bronze in the boys section and father and daughter Ellis and Rory Campion also got Bronze in the girls and mens pointfighting.

Robbie had to pull out  due to illness after winning his first fight. Rossi and Paige fought well but were unlucky not to progress this time.
