Childers sisters head to World Cup
Duo set to make mark at the karate World Cup
SISTERS Brooke and Kate Fitz-Gibbon are set to fly to Cape Town, South Africa, this week to represent Australia in the ISKF World Shoto Cup.
Childers Karate Club instructor John Russo said he was, and indeed the whole Isis community should be, proud to have these two young ladies representing Australia.
“Both have been training their hearts out over the past 18 months to culminate in representing our community, state and country at this event,” Mr Russo said.
The girls train four times a week in preparation and in the lead-up to the World Cup.
Mr Russo said they were peaking at the right time and he was confident they would represent Australia with honour and distinction.
Mr Russo will be travelling to South Africa in his capacity of chairman of the ISKF Australia karate organisation, and officiating as a judge and country representative at the World Cup and world meeting.
The national team comprises 29 junior and senior members and the touring party of supporters takes the total to 79 people.
With the Olympic Games currently on in Rio, the patriotism is very infectious, and the Fitz-Gibbon sisters hope to do Childers and Australia proud and bring home some medals.
