Shining medal tally for kickboxing team
Twelve athletes from Granadilla brought a dozen medals back to the municipality following the Tenerife Kickboxing Championships.
The hotly-contested event was held in the pavilion ‘Pancho Camurria’ in Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
In total, there were four golds, seven silver and bronze, nine in point combat, one in K1 and one in kickboxing light.
The athletes belong to the school of Mar Rodriguez, six times world champion in kickboxing over ten years.
Councillor for sport, Sara Cano Delgado, congratulated this young quarry of sportsmen and their teacher, Mar Rodríguez, for the great work developed in favour of a lesser known sport but one which has a great following of supporters in the municipality.
The next sporting event will be the Championship of the Canary Islands that will take place on March 25th and which will be attended by the four gold winners as representatives of Tenerife.
