Nicole collects gold and bronze for Team England
12:15pm Thursday 3rd October 2013 in Sport
TEAM England karate starlet Nicole Donoghue has extra reason to celebrate her 18th birthday next week – after clinching gold and bronze medals at the weekend’s World Shotokan Karate Championships Nic, from New Bold, fought her heart out at the event held at Liverpool Echo arena, winning eight of her 11 contests.
And although the 17-year-old St Helens College student is still nursing the bruises from some fiercely competitive action – she could take comfort from her outstanding performances.
Nic, who trains with St Helens Karate, reached the semi-finals in the individuals junior section, took a bronze medal in the junior team event and gold in the cadet team event, along with team-mates Rebecca Morrison and Beth Nicholson.
