Three Royston, Melbourn and Bassingbourn fighters picked up karate gold at a Kamaete Schools of Traditional Shotokan Karate (KSTSK) tournament held at Wodson Park, Ware.

Ewan Cameron, Sam Sherwin and Yavor Czarnowski-Iliev all took the top prize within a field of 15 clubs from Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.

There were also two silvers for Gavin Elliott-Turner and Kareina Khera as well as solo silvers for Jessie Boorman, Ewan Cameron, Ciaran King, William Leese and Sam Sherwin.

Meanwhile, bronze was won by Ciaran Basra, Jessie Boorman, Maxim Varea, George Whybrow and William Leese.

It was the 10th straight year Royston, Bassingbourn and Melbourn instructor Peter Khera has organised this competition.

Sensei Khera said: “The standard is higher now and we run a three hour course before it so that the fighters are ready for the competition. Some have advanced from white belt to become black belts which is great.”
