Karate World Status for Antrimís Gerard thumbnail

AN Antrim teenager has achieved World Level Status after competing at the recent World Karate Championships in Belgrade.
Gerard McLean, of Antrim Karate Club, was the only local competitor out of 18 from NI who travelled to the event in Serbia.
After coming so near but yet so far in the individual events, Gerard put his mind to the team competition and really stepped up to the mark.
A spokesperson said: "As team captain, Gerard stepped forward as the first fighter and demonstrated leadership and determination in his fighting.
“He fought brilliantly, sweeping his opponent, punching and kicking with precision and timing and he ended up winning his fight 4-2."
