Moberly Stars Red and Yellow Belt Rumble 2020

The Moberly Stars Red and Yellow belt rumble yesterday was a great success. Not only did we achieve our objective of running an event with a maximum of 3.5hrs from weigh in to medal presentation, we had a great time doing it. Our Moberly family came together and showed great support for each other. We had so many experiencing an event for the very first time and i hope they all had a positive experience. We even had to cope with not receiving our bespoke medals (China was closed ?) and had some very last minute replacements!
I am so proud of my team of competitors, coaches, officials, referees and army of parents and volunteers that made this event such a success. Proud is definitely an understatement.

Big well done to Oliver and Omar who won silver and bronze at the English Cadet Open in Thetford yesterday. Both were in great form in a really tough event. Oliver won silver in the u46k and Omar took bronze in the u50k.
