Kickboxer Nesta Baxter is returning from Italy with two more medals.

The 14-year-old has been competing at the Bestfighter WAKO World Cup, where she earned a couple of podium positions.

Nesta scooped silver in the -55kg continuous category, eventually being beaten in the final by an Italian fighter.

Meanwhile, she added to her trophy cabinet by also claiming the bronze medal in the -50kg girls’ continuous category.

Nesta - who is a member of Boston’s Evolution Martial Arts - was competing against rivals from across the globe in the under 16 years categories.

There were 24 opponents in the -50kg event and 15 competitors in the -55kg section.

Nesta (pictured) will now join fellow Evolution club member Ambie Brocklesby as they prepare to represent Great Britain at the WAKO World Championships in September.
