Bray People - - NEWS -

WICK­LOW'S Carla Walker (right) is gear­ing up for her ap­pear­ance rep­re­sent­ing Ire­land in the Sho­tokan Karate Euro­pean Cham­pi­onships.

Carla will be wear­ing the Ir­ish colours when she com­petes in the Euro­pean Cham­pi­onships at Un­der-18 level in Lon­don on April 1 and April 2. A mem­ber of the Clon­dalkin Sho­tokan Academy in Dublin, Carla flies out to Lon­don on Thurs­day evening.

She has over ten years ex­pe­ri­ence and has shot up in the Sho­tokan rank­ings over that time, with a num­ber of notable vic­to­ries al­ready un­der her belt.

Rep­re­sent­ing her coun­try is the high­light of her ca­reer so far.

'I can't wait to com­pete,' ad­mits an over­joyed Carla.

'I have re­ceived so much sup­port from peo­ple and I would like to thank ev­ery­one who wished me good luck. I also want to thank my spon­sors who have all been bril­liant.'
