Lowestoft’s Shanice Baker (9) won the -30 kilo junior girls gold medal, her first national honours.

Yarmouth’s Chiara Spink (12) won the -35 kilo junior girls gold medal, also her first national honours.

Yarmouth’s Tia Sayer (12) won the -40 kilo junior girls gold medal, beating last year’s champion who was far more experienced than her.

Yarmouth’s Cam McGarrigle (16) won the -65 kilo kadet boys’ gold medal, his fourth championship.

Yarmouth’s Travis Manning (12) won the -40 kilo junior boys’ gold medal, his 5th title and Travis’ mum, Lisa Manning (37) won the over 35s -70 kilos ladies’ gold medal, a great win for the hard-working mum of four.
