Veras Academy youngsters were among the medals once again at the French Cup last weekend.
Competing for the USF club, Luan Veras finished the season in style with a gold medal in the pre-cadets (12/13 years) under-50kg competition.
Tayla O’Brien added bronze in the under-40kg category, while Demie Holland won bronze in the over-50kg group.
All three train at the academy’s Islington base under coach Raphael Veras, who said: “Luan received a call from the French Karate Federation, informing him he has been selected to be in the French squad.
“He will have to pass this great opportunity as he is not a French national, but it is such a great pleasure to be recognised by a foreign country, which is within the top five ranking countres in the world of karate.”
