Grand prix gold for aeron

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - READER TRAVEL -

Ste­wartry Karate Club’s Aeron Green­land added to his grow­ing medal col­lec­tion by claim­ing gold at the fi­nal Scot­tish Karate Grand Prix of the sea­son in Wishaw.

The young­ster, who lives in Ge­orge­town in Dum­fries, was full of con­fi­dence after win­ning a sil­ver medal at the Bri­tish In­ter­na­tional Open Karate Cham­pi­onships.

He knew it would be tough due to the large num­ber of en­tries in the un­der-14 cat­e­gory, com­pet­ing un­der World Karate Fed­er­a­tion rules.

After five rounds of com­pe­ti­tion, Aeron came away with the gold medal after win­ning 3-0 against each com­peti­tor. It was an­other im­pres­sive per­for­mance and he seems to be show­ing good progress in ev­ery com­pe­ti­tion.

He is now train­ing hard ahead of a trip to Italy to com­pete in an in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tion.

Aeron trains in Kil­marnock and Cly­de­bank and with Ste­wartry Karate Club and at home six days a week. A big thanks goes to the fit­ness team at DGOne, es­pe­cially Scott McVin­nie who looks after his fit­ness and con­di­tion­ing.
