A PAIR of martial artists returned from competitions in Wales with a silver sparkle and suitably bronzed.
Tracey Wray, 23 and 20-year-old Sian Tunstall represented Widnes Tae Kwon-do club.
Both picked up medals for second and third places at each event.
A 400-mile round trip to Cardiff for the Welsh National Competition saw blue tag Tunstall take silver and Wray, a green tag, bronze in their sparring categories.
Wray was runner-up in the patterns division.
The women soon returned for the Welsh International - at the same venue.
They once again represented the club well, both bringing home sparring bronze awards.
Next up for the duo is a competition at the end of this month in County Antrim, Northern Ireland.
They also hope to represent their club at the North Midlands Championships in July.
Meanwhile, club instructor Geoff Astle has more to celebrate after passing a 3rd Dan black-belt exam. He has been training in tae kwon-do for more than 12 years and travelled to Bristol for the grading with three successful colleagues from the Wirral and Chester area.
They were among 21 black belts participating.
Widnes Tae Kwon-do Club trains on Mondays at Stadium Fitness (juniors 7pm-8pm, adults 8pm-9pm) and at Kingsway Leisure Centre on Wednesdays (all ages and abilities 8pm-9pm).
All are welcome for a free taster session.
