A 17-year-old girl became the English national karate champion for her age and weight during the Easter holidays.

Jade Attfield, who attends Sanders School, Suttons Lane, Hornchurch, first travelled to Orléans in France, to compete but missed out on a bronze medal.

Undeterred, the teenager then travelled to Bath and was selected as part of the South East team.

School spokeswoman Stacey Kyriacou said: “Jade went on to Leicester for the English National Championships and took the gold medal to become the English national champion for her category – 16/17years, 59kg and above.

“[Jade got] scores of 5/1 in the first round, 5/1 in the second round and 5/3 in the third round.

“[She] then went on to the final where she achieved a 2/0 win.”

Jade’s mum, Karen Shoulder added: “What a day that was, so proud of her.”

The teenager, who is also a junior fire cadet instructor was also praised at the mayor’s Civic Awards ceremony at Havering Town Hall, Main Road, Romford.

Stacey added: “Congratulations to Jade who has made great achievements in her chosen sport and shows great dedication.”
