A Melton martial arts student was celebrating after bringing home a medal from a national championships last weekend.
Abigail Goddard, who trains at the Grove School Tae Kwon-Do Club, entered the British Tae Kwon-Do Championships and gained silver in the cadet black belt sparring category.
Instructor Malcolm Scholes said: “This was particularly impressive as it was Abigail’s first competition as a black belt which she achieved in October.”
The event was held at Worcester Arena and attracted 1,500 tae kwon-do exponents throughout the day.
Abigail is now hoping she will be selected to take part in the English Championships in March.
