Taekwondo ace Megan Featherstone represented the Great Britain demonstration team at the Grand Prix in Manchester on Saturday night.

The 15-year-old, from Amber Hill, joined up with South Yorkshire’s Team Ultimate to compete in the junior girls’ tag-team event.

Competing against Team Academy from Liverpool, Megan scored a good nine points in the first round with a reverse to the head, an axe kick and a body shot, only conceding three points in the process.

The second round was a lot quicker as coaches had to lift a flag to swap fighters but Megan got some good head shots on her opponents, only conceding a head shot and a few body shots.

She is now in full training and preparing to represent England juniors in a Commonwealth tournament in Scotland next month.
