A TALENTED teenager from Northwich has claimed a silver medal in a regional Tae Kwon Do tournament – only his second competition of the year.
Fifteen-year-old Jonathan Reilly, a 2nd dan black belt who lives on Kingsmead, came second in the boys’ black belt heavyweight sparring division at the North Midlands Championships last week.
The competition was held in Derby on Sunday, July 20, and Jonathan only lost out in the final to the 2007 World Championship silver medallist.
The Hartford High School pupil is coached by Ruth Chare at Northwich Tae Kwon Do Club, based at the youth centre on Winnington Lane.
Ruth, herself a 5th dan three-times World Champion, said: “Jonathan fought really well and intelligently. Considering it was only his second competition of the year he did brilliantly.”
