Wisbech fighter completes hat-trick of gold medals after triumph at Taekwon-do Championships
A WISBECH fighter has brought home two gold medals from the English Open National Taekwon-do Championships.
Dominic Marcinkevicious, who trains with the Carter School of Taekwon-do at the Hudson Leisure Centre in Wisbech, bagged gold medals for both his sparring and his high kicking (power).
The victories completed his hat-trick of golds, after he triumphed in the Welsh and Scottish Opens earlier in the year.
The English Open, held at the K2 Sports and Leisure Centre in Crawley near London, saw hundreds of fighters compete from across the UK.
Anthony Carter, Fifth Dan International Instructor, said Dominic was a worthy winner.
