A Loughborough College student has won her second national karate championship title this year.
Weronika Olesiejuk triumphed at the Polish International Karate Championships, hot on the heels of taking the top spot in the British Open Karate Championships.
The 18 year old, who studies Sport at Loughborough College, says her teachers have been very supportive. “I do full contact karate, training every day, and the College is really helpful with me combining that with my studies. I am so happy there.
“My parents were at work so they couldn’t be with me at the championships in Poland but they streamed it online so at least they were able to watch me win. They are very proud of me.
“I’m continuing to train hard – sometimes even in the garden at home where there’s space – because I have my next competition in Scotland in February.
“My ambition is to get a national team selection and eventually to become a karate teacher.”
“Weronika works so hard and has really developed her English, maths and sports knowledge,” said Loughborough College course leader Steve Wilkinson.
“She is very committed to everything she does and her winning this latest award is a real tribute to this.”
