Noadswood’s Ella Barnes has attended several European competitions since becoming a Taekwondo Commonwealth Silver medallist. She competed in France at the beginning of April where she won Gold, competing against other Junior athletes. She beat the 17 year old Dutch national champion in the final wining the competition in her weight category.
She then competed in Holland in the middle of April where she won a Bronze medal.
Coming up, she will be competing in the Dutch masters at the end of May. We are also hopeful that she will be selected for the GB junior squad for the European championships in October. Ella also has a 10 day training camp in Budapest in Hungary in August 2015, which will hopefully get her fighting fit for the British nationals in Manchester in September.
We all wish her huge luck!
