SARAH Clark has won numerous trophies and medals in her latest competitions. At the English Championships, she retained her English title by winning the gold medal in the -55k senior ladies event and also took a bronze in the open weight. In the AMA International Championships, she had magnificent open weight wins, beating other English fighters, Iran, and Scotland, followed by an excellent semi-final against Russia.She narrowly missed out for first place in the final, losing to a very strong Australian opponent, although she sustained a bad injury during that bout, she came away with a worthy second place.The injury should have stopped her from competing in her final event of the day, but she decided to continue with dogged determination and she eventually came away with a respectable third place in the -55k ladies. Congratulations Sarah from everyone at the Oldmixon & Uphill Karate Kai.
