Great Yarmouth’s Triple S Fight Team travelled to Birmingham to compete in the Thai, K1 and Kickboxing Championships over two days.

It was a long and tiring weekend and the competition was of the highest standard.

Keira Sayer in the Thai made it through to the final only to be pipped to the gold by a strong opponent from Manchester.

Remy Sayer was up next in what was described by the officials as the category of the day. Remy made it through to the semi-finals where he faced a tough fighter from Birmingham. Three tough rounds saw Remy victorious and through to the final.

In the final he faced another tough opponent from the renowned Assassins Gym in Melton Mowbray. Once again the fight went to the scorecards where Remy was announced the winner and the new WKU International Thai Boxing Champion.

Day Two of the tournament saw all three of the Triple S Fight Team in action in the K1 and Kickboxing categories.

Sayer made it through to the final after hard preliminary rounds before winning with a unanimous decision to become the -35kg WKU British Open kickboxing champion.
