Youngster impresses at karate competition

Tower Hamlets youngster Nevaeh Thomas-Birch overcame the odds to win gold at the Hayashi-Ha Open Championships in east London at the weekend.

The youngster, having celebrated her 10th birthday last month, produced three excellent results in the 10/11-year-old kumite competition, clinching victory in the last 15 seconds.

And her success came after winning bronze in France, as well as claiming first place at the Open Shito Ryu competition.

Christie Thomas said: “Nevaeh strives for success and has come a long way in the last year. She is hoping for the same success this weekend at the BKF Four Nations Championships.

“The Veras Academy has become a second home and her respect for the team is insurmountable. She is going to continue to work towards being a champion of the sport, training regularly and working towards more success in France and England alike.”
