Truesdale Retains Euro Crown For Third Time
Amy Truesdale has retained her Para European title in Warsaw, Poland.
With her sights set on Tokyo 2020, the determined 27-year-old ensured nothing got in her way of making it onto the coveted number one spot on the podium.
Truesdale defeated a familiar opponent on her way to the +58kg Final in the form of France’s Laura Schiel, who is currently ranked third in the world. Having lost twice this year already, the Chester-based fighter overcame Schiel’s tactics to come out on top, beating her 6-3.
Next up was Morocco’s Rajae Akermach – who had defeated first ranked Aynur Mammadova (AZE) to reach the Final and despite her best efforts, it was no match for Truesdale’s fighting style.
