Emelye O’Brien wins International karate bronze
Bradford teenager Emelye O’Brien won a bronze medal at the British Karate Federation International Open.
This prestigious tournament was held at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow and boasted top international competitors from nations such as France, Poland, Venezuela and Australia.
Leeds Karate Academy student O’Brien finished third in the girls open weight kumite category as she added to her growing collection of prizes.
Clubmate Oliver Deane also earned bronze in the male cadet kumite section.
Coach and club instructor Matt Price, a former world champion, said: “Both were a credit to themselves and the club. This is the first top-level international medal for them both and I’m sure there will be many more in the future.”
