Grantham and Corby Glen Tae Kwon-Do Club picked up eight medals in the South-East Championships.

The event, held at the K2 Arena, Crawley, was organised by the Tae Kwon-Do Association of Great Britain and attracted competitors from throughout the country, and included disciplines for all ages.

Displaying a fine performance in the girls’ yellow belt patterns, eight-year-old Charlotte Lee gained silver for the club, whilst 15-year-old Rosie Clarke took bronze in the girls’ red belt patterns and gold in middleweight sparring.

Representing the boys, Joshua Clarke won silver in the final of the black belt heavyweight sparring.

In the men’s section, Philip Lee won gold in yellow belt patterns and silver in welterweight sparring. Fifth degree black belt Daniel Pearce clinched bronze in a thrilling play-off in the mens black belt patterns final.

Later in the day, Joshua Clarke entered a team with two other black belt boys and lifted another gold for the club in tag team sparring.
