Carre’s Grammar School student Kieran Fowler, of Swaton, won two gold medals at the ITF Tae Kwon-Do World Championship in Birmingham.

Seventy-eight boys from all over the world competed in Kieran’s category, ‘Junior Boys Middleweight Black Belt’, and he fought hard to win through to the final, before defeating his opponent from the USA to claim gold.

Kieran, who trains in Billingborough, went on to win his second gold in ‘Team Sparring’, all under the watchful eye of Team GB coach Master Kenny Walton, who supported him from the side-lines.
