Sport Karate East (SKE) are toasting the success of their athletes at the recent Irish International Open.
Last month saw eight athletes from the Dundee club bag podium places and take home medals from the event in Dublin.
There were gongs for Eve Watt, Liam Collins, Scott Collins, Lewis Bryson, Billie Ross, Kyle McLean, Daisy Hutchison and Matthew Pratt.
The first success of the day came when Watt won a bronze medal in the girls 10/11 years -33kg category.
There was further glory for brothers Liam and Scott Collins with a silver and bronze respectively for the siblings in the boys 10/11 years -34kg section.
Bryson followed that with a silver in the boys 12/13 years -42kg group.
In some of the older age groups SKE were celebrating once again as Ross took bronze in the female cadet -54kg category and McLean won the same in the male seniors -75kg event.
The greatest achievements of the weekend, however, were reserved for two athletes who look to have elite potential in the sport – Daisy Hutchison and Matthew Pratt.
At only 11-years-old, Hutchison is already the British Four Nations champion for her category and followed that recent success by being crowned the Irish International Open champion in the girls 10/11 years +33kg group.
Pratt was not going to be outdone by Dundee’s “Little Pocket Rocket” Hutchison and came out of the gate all guns blazing and swept aside all of his opponents to be crowned Irish International Open Champion in the Male Cadet +70kgs category.
Of their success, SKE’s Richard Mallinson said: “They performed to their potential by achieving podium positions.
“The balance of our athletes learned from the experience and gained valuable tatami time.”
