Grant Brown led the ‘TASK’ force into glorious action in the latest round of the Peterborough Championship kick-boxing competition held at Bushfield.
Brown is a black belt at the Taylor Academy of Sport Karate (TASK) and won the men’s advanced middleweight crown, as well as the overall grand championship. His reward for the latter was a six foot high trophy.
Academy chief Rob Taylor was just as pleased with his other fighters at the event as 15 competitors won 18 trophies/podium places.
The other standout performer was 11 year-old Arnas Levickis who claimed a brilliant second place despite the cancellation of his beginner’s event meaning he competed within a black belt category.
Ernestas Girdauskas did a double, winning the heavyweight beginners light contact section and the mens advanced heavyweight section.
The icing on the cake came from first time girls, Eva Andrulyte (11) and Skaiste Stukaite (12) who fought in the same girls beginners category and met eachother in the final with Skaiste winning a fight which could have gone either way.
