MARTIAL ARTS: Five members of King’s Lynn’s Mark Farnham Schools of Tae Kwon-Do enjoyed medal-winning performances at the TAGB South East Championships in Guildford.

A total of 22 students gained 24 awards, with the Lynn contingent getting seven of them.

The championships involved four categories – pattern, sparring, destruction and team sparring events and Tillie-Mai Flanagan led the way with a pair of first places in the girls’ green belt sparring and team sparring events.

Oliver Wright was first in the boys’ black belt sparring competition and there was also a first place for Spencer Dawes in the boys’ blue belt team sparring, as well as third place in the sparring.

Mike Bloy was third in the boys’ blue belt patterns, a position repeated by Gvidas Norvilas in the boys’ red belt patterns.

Farnham said: “We won 24 medals, including nine first places. To win any award at this event is a fantastic achievement, so well done to the students.

They are now preparing for their next events at the British Championships in November.
