Almost two weeks ago the World Association of Kickboxing Organizations (WAKO) held their biggest event, the world championships, in Ireland. Over 2,500 participated but only a very select few were able to call themselves champions at tournament’s end. Eliza Bluma, Dayna Walsh, Robyn McDonnell and Craig Tuite were the locals who had spectacular performances in the tournament.
The fighters earned medals and fought their hearts out. Overall, they brought home one gold and two bronze medals between them. It seems as though their many months of hard training and preparation had paid off. It is quite clear that they all have earned a spot on the Irish national team for many years to come and that their best has yet to come. Don’t sleep on this team!
