HORIZON Taekwondo Academy continued their run of success with medals at the World Friendship Championships in London.

The competition, which aims to unite Nepalese citizens around the world and promote friendship across all cultures, runs every year and last time took place in the United States.

Approximately 300 competitors were treated to some traditional Nepalese cultural displays, including food, dancing and singing, at stages throughout the event.

One of the Horizon medallists was 13-year-old Hannah Perry, from Bradford, who won gold in the cadet intermediate +51kg category.

Ellie Bowden, also 13 from Cullingworth, continued her undefeated streak in 2014 with her fourth gold in as many tournaments since January, coming in the cadet advanced -44kg category.

Silsden's Jamie Simpson-Kidd, 12, picked up a bronze medal.
