Sinden Is King Of Europe
Brad Sinden of Kings Taekwondo, Doncaster, has won Britain’s first gold at this year’s ETU Junior European Championships in Latvia.
The 17-year-old fighter dominated his category throughout the day by winning matches against opponents from the Netherlands and Germany, before beating Serbian Nikola Djurdjevic 22-9 in the -63kg Final.
The win provides a great boost for the GB Squad at the halfway stage of the four day Championships.
It was a close call for fellow team-mate, Hassan Haider who lost out on the chance to secure a medal, bowing out in the -48kg Quarter Final against Beka Kavtaradze of Georgia.
