A TRIO of Crewe martial artists won medals at the Tae Kwon-do Association of Great Britain National Championships at Nottingham.
Brothers Jonathan and William May both got silver gongs for sparring, while Liam Bromiley got bronze for sparring. All three train at Leslie Wright's Tae Kwon-do Centre, based at King's Grove School.
They were among more than 1,800 competitors from all over Great Britain, Ireland, Poland, Holland and Austria.
Meanwhile, the popular club is also celebrating after five members were awarded black belts after a four-day examination in Bristol.
Paul Ridgway, Thomas Dale, Matthew Brehaut, Samuel Malony and Peter Jones were the success stories, along with Jack Robinson, who passed his second-dan assessment.
Now instructor Leslie is looking forward to taking a team of eight to the World Open Tae Kwon-do Championships at Birmingham, which get under way on June 30.
He said: 'These champion-ships will be the biggest ever, with competitors from over 40 countries attending. If we are successful, we could have a world Tae Kwon-do champion from this area.'
Club sessions are held at King's Grove and Brine Leas High Schools. For more details, call Leslie Wright on 01270 665868 or 07929 110224.
