SHIRLEY Tae Kwon-Do Club’s Irina Guy has become the club’s latest double national champion winning in both patterns and individual sparring divisions at the Welsh National Championships in Cardiff.
Irina trains under former two times world champion Steve Merricks at Light Hall School in Shirley.
“The Welsh Championships are one of the largest national tournaments of the year and to have a student like Irina win both pattern and sparring divisions is an outstanding achievement,” said Mr Merricks.
“She trains hard, always gives 100 per cent and thoroughly deserves this success. She is also the first student at my club to win both her divisions at a national championship so we are all very proud of her.”
With the Olympics coming up Shirley Tae Kwon-Do Club are looking for their next champion by offering free taster sessions.
