London Area British Schools Championships

Last Saturday, 5 Moberly Stars represented their respective schools at the London Area Regional British Schools Championships at UEL. A qualifying event that gives the finalists the opportunity to compete at the 2016 British Schools Championships. All 5 fought in the school year 10-13 section.

Reuel, representing St Augustine High School made short work of his first opponent and then displayed his growing confidence with victory in his remaining contests to win gold in the u55k. 2015-11-14 16.45.01

Westminster Kingsway College student Micheal Mensah, also saw the results of his hard work with a stunning victory in the u60k category. Also competing in the u60s, Mohud, a student at Quintin Kynaston Community Academy, was inspired and battled to a well deserved bronze medal. Representing Hampstead School, Bence was unfortunate in his bronze medal final and although Tyrese began with an excellent victory in the u66k, he would end the day missing out on the medals.
