Champion took her chances to win gold
12:00pm Thursday 19th June 2014 in Sport
JESSICA Chance took gold at North Solihull Sports Centre to seal the overall title in her category at the Kwon Championships.
Chance, a member of Wolverley’s Eclipse Martial Arts Club, was overall winner in the Over-59 kilogram light continuous fight section after three rounds.
Club-mate Chloe Elrick took gold in her continuous fighting Under-52kg weight category by soundly defeating her opponents.
Emma Jayne Morris fought her way to the final in the points categories and bagged a silver medal, losing by a small margin in the final.
Dawn White, Eclipse’s oldest female member entering the female veterans section, put on a strong impressive display of technique and skill but was just pipped to gold by a very good opponent.
She gained silver, which was a satisfying result after missing out on podium finishes in her last two tournaments.
Finally, the newest member of Team Eclipse, Cieran Carroll, 9, was in action.
He bravely fought in the points and light continuous.
Carroll narrowly missed out on bronze in the points in what was a very difficult group.
In the light continuous, he reached the final where the novice went toe-to-toe with a second dan blackbelt who had plenty of experience.
A week before the Kwon, Eclipse fighters were in action in Worcester at the World United Martial Arts.
Daniel Hawkins, Elrick, Morris, Dillion Elrick, Callum Hawkins and Carroll all tasted victory.
Team Eclipse put on a tremendous display and took an impressive tally of trophies home.
