The first came in the form of teenager Bradly Sinden’s bronze, which the Doncaster fighter picked up by going head-to-head with GB teammate Christian McNeish in the -68kg semi-final.
London-born McNeish beat his compatriot 18-16 before going on to dominate the final where he took down Canadian Hevran Nkogho Mengue 13-11.
Elsewhere, heavyweight female, Jade Slavin competed for the first time this year and came second to newcomer, Shuwen Lv of China whilst youngster, Lauren Williams finished off the tournament with a gold medal win.
But that wasn’t all for the five-strong squad – Williams was impressively named, ‘Best Female Fighter’ and the duo took the title of ‘3rd Best Female Team’.
