Darlene Foster flying the Flag for Wales at the Senior Para Karate Championships 2018

 

Congratulations to Darlene Foster who represented Wales (WKGB) at the Senior European Championships in Novi Sad.

 

The Para Karate event was being held for the first time at a Senior European Karate Championships.

 

This was not Darlene's first time representing Wales having represented her country at two previous world championships, and having won a silver in the 2014 World Championship Darlene was determined to bring a European medal back.

 

Darlene who has been training very hard for this event didn't disappoint.

 

Having gone through the preliminary rounds, Darlene made it to the final against Germany. Darlene performed a superb Seienchin kata but the German just pipped her to the gold medal.

 

A wonderful achievement for Darlene bringing home a Silver medal, congratulations to Darlene, Coaches, Officials, the WKGB, Wales and to all involved.
