Oldmixon & Uphill Karate Club member Gemma Cross won gold in the WKU Spring Invitational open weight Kumite division.
Two students from the Oldmixon & Uphill Karate Club won medals in the popular WKU Spring Invitational event held at Hutton Moor Leisure Centre.
There were triple honours for Gemma Cross, who made her comeback at the event having been unable to compete for over a year due to a bad knee injury.
She won the silver medal in the Black Belt Kata, narrowly missing out on gold in the final. Her next category was the individual senior grade Kumite in which she was unlucky, but still came away with a respectable bronze medal.
When it came to the open weight Kumite, she produced a top quality performance, keeping the pressure on her opponents despite many of them being much larger than her, and her determination shone through gaining her the coveted gold medal.

They both train at the Oldmixon & Uphill Karate Club. For further information, please call 01934 823600 or email email@example.com
