Thomas Clarkson Academy student Charlotte Cameron won gold at the World Kickboxing Championships in Portugal.

The 14 year old came home with five medals this year and a World Champion title in the cadet girls 13-15 years category -60kg.

Cameron said: “It feels unbelievable. It is everything I have worked for in eight weeks of training. Taking part in the championships was overwhelming but when you step on that mat the adrenaline takes over and you forget about everyone around you.”

Her proud father Stuart said: “Charlotte fought really well in her individual events and on the day all her fights were really close.

“They could have gone either way and to be told that she was robbed by the coach of her competitor says something about how Charlotte did on the day.
