The Giff had another World Champion with Emily Oakes performing against some tough competition from Australia, Canada, Czech Republic & USA in the patterns. A superb & emotional achievement for her.

Phoebe also performed strong patterns in her category & got through one round against Ireland only to be stopped by an Australian. A great effort from her.

Lucie put in a really fantastic effort against some really mature, tall girls in the special technique division. All her extra practice had paid off & she was rewarded with a well deserved World silver medal for her efforts.

These fantastic achievements by our Giff guys were added to by fellow UK ITF Bristol student Joel Cassar winning a World Championship title in the sparring category.
