Stoke Gifford student Emily Oakes is awarded Junior Sports Achiever 2013/14.
Emily who lives in Cheshire, joined Stoke Gifford TKD last year & travels down weekly to train with Miss Burridge & the Giff family, was awarded this prestigious title last night from the Cheshire Sports Council.
She was put forward against other juniors normally nominated by their school (Emily’s school nominated three),
She was short-listed to just three people in the region, an Alpine Skier who represents GB in winter sport specializing in cross country ski events, and the captain of Team GB’s handball team.
Emily was presented a trophy to keep for one year, and a glass trophy accompanied with a certificate to keep.
The most notable previous winner was probably Beth Tweddle in 2002.
Mr Mark Colbourne MBE and current world record holder and Olympic champion presented Emily her awards.
The award was given to Emily on the results she has achieved with TaeKwon-do, noting her results at the Euro’s, her results at inter-school level competition in Netball, Badminton, cross country and athletics, and a note was also made in regard to training at Stoke Gifford TKD in Bristol.
Stoke Gifford TKD would like to congratulate Emily for achieving this award, which is testimony to her dedication & commitment to sport & Taekwon-do.
