Strikeback kickboxer George Katsimpas won two gold medals at the national championships in Birmingham.

STRIKEBACK Gym sent three fighters to the British Kickboxing Council National Championships in Birmingham.

Two junior competitors, Rory Miller and Connor Wall, and George Katsimpas were up against fighters from all over the UK.

Miller and Wall finished just outside the medals after a tough day of fighting and came away with certificates of merit. Katsimpas made it all the way to the final in two categories - 80kg full contact and the 80kg continuous, winning gold in both.
