Ugu trio Wian de Beer, Chloe Ellis and Tyler Hogan recently represented KwaZulu-Natal at the Karate South Africa League Championship which was held at Tempe Military Base, Bloemfontein.
The top athletes from all the provinces competed and an extremely high standard of competition was showcased. The conditions and competition were tough, yet pleasing results were achieved as all three local karateka took home medals.
Wian won a gold medal in the boys kumite 10/11 over 40kg division, Tyler received two silver medals in the junior 16/17 kata and team kumite events and Chloe bagged bronze in the girls 10/11 kumite under 45kg division.
