East Devon youngsters Barnaby Rowland (15) from Dunkeswell and Jamie White (16) from Sidmouth achieved two superb bronze medals at the prestigious Muay Thai World Games in Thailand.

Representing the Twin Tigers Martial Arts and Boxing Club based in Honiton, Barnaby and Jamie demonstrated exceptional skill and determination, ultimately securing bronze medals, in their respective weight classes. The competition was fierce, and the weather was unforgivably hot, with each athlete facing formidable opponents who then went on to win gold.

Twin Tigers said: We are incredibly proud of their achievements, hard work and and continued strength of will. Despite the challenges, our athletes remain steadfast in their commitment to representing England and have expressed their unwavering determination to compete again.

“On behalf of the athletes and their families and coaches, we would like to express our deepest gratitude to everyone who supported Jamie and Barnaby throughout their journey. Your remarkable support, both in terms of attending fundraising events and making generous donations, has been instrumental in their success.”

Team England came 2nd overall in the competition of over 60 countries.
