Kickboxer Nesta Baxter scooped a silver and a bronze medal at the Bristol Open this weekend.

The 13-year-old Bostonian was competing in the girls’ 165cms category.

She earned her silver in the points category, before claiming bronze in the continuous fighting section.

The Bristol Open is held over two days, with up to 80 fighters - from across the UK and also representing Canada, Italy, Norway, Ireland, Germany and Switzerland - contesting each category.

Nesta spent the previous weekend competing at the CIMAC Superleague in Dorking Surrey.

There she won two gold medals - taking first places in the girls’ under 50kg continuous event and the girls’ under 52kg in points fighting.

Nesta is a member of Boston’s Evolution club but was representing Nottingham’s Team Blue Blood.
