Vinehall Head Boy Ollie competing at the World Championships

We’re very excited for our Head Boy, Ollie who is competing this week at the 8th WIKF World Championships in Curacao.

He has been training since he was 5 years old and was selected for the WIKF England Squad age 9. He went to the European Championships in Cyprus winning Bronze. He followed this up in 2015 with a team Gold in Denmark and then an Individual Silver in Rotterdam 2016.

The WIKF World championships are held every 4 years and the squad arrived in Curacao in the Caribbean on Monday, they will train all week to acclimatise to the hot and humid conditions. The opening ceremony is Thursday then the competing begins.

The England Coach is looking for a big medal haul as they are a strong squad particularly in Ollie’s age category.

Karate is self-funded and Ollie’s family would like to thank everyone who contributed to their Just Giving Page this year as well as the invaluable love and support  he receives.

Good luck Ollie, We’re Very proud of you.
