TAE KWON-DO: Billingborough’s Fowler retains Midlands title

Have your say

It was an all-round outstanding result for students from Annabel Murcotts Schools of Tae Kwon-Do at the Midlands Tae Kwon Do Championships, held at Kettering leisure village.

They picked up 27 medals, eight of which were gold, and two of them held on to their title from last year.

Kieran Fowler, from the Billingborough branch of the club, who won the British Championhips title in December last year, retained his Midlands title for the second year along with Christina Rogers from Langtoft.

He came up against some tough determined fighters in the first rounds but with true grit and determination, Kieran gave it his all.

Coach Annabel Murcott, 7th Dan World Master, said: “It was an awesome day for the families, once again showing how as a family you can train together, get fit together and win medals together.

“The atmosphere in the arena was on a high, as everyone is getting ready for the largest martial art world championships ever held in the UK, with over 3,500 competitors from all over the world coming together for a two day event in Birmingham in July.

“Many of the students have got their eyes set on a medal at this event and are flat out in training. I feel very confident we should see some new world champions in the club.”
