A local karate championship cup crowned a local winner over the weekend.
Kelowna’s Kaela Linsdell won at the Kelowna Karate Championship Cup which brought in athletes from across the Okanagan. Lindsell won gold in three karate sections: kata, kiphon ippon kumite and free sparring.
Her free sparring win came in dramatic fashion with a triple overtime victory.
“Kaela is a very gifted, talented, hard working athlete,” said Kelowna Karate and Fitness sensei Paul Atkin.
“This is just the beginning for the bright star that has a huge future in the competition world with her skill-set.”
