A DUO from Cheddar has high-kicked its way to the top after becoming world champions. Billy Standen and Ryan Bugler, both aged 10, took part in the 8th Open Tae Kwon Do World Championships at Birmingham NEC last Saturday and Sunday. More than 40 countries competed in the competition. The Fairlands Middle School students battled their way through to the Junior Tag Team final against the Republic of Ireland. The boys held their nerve and scored the winning point in the last seconds to finish 12-11.The boys are members of Gemini Tae Kwon Do Club which has been based at Kings of Wessex Leisure Centre since 2004. Gemini spokesman Jane Lambert said: "The final was against a strong team and it was very close. The Irish lads had a large team of supporters but that didn't deter Billy and Ryan. We are so proud of them.
