BRACKNELL teenager Millie Yates has confirmed her position as one of the top taekwondo fighters in the country.

The 13-year-old Sandhurst School pupil has won two more major tournaments in the past few weeks as she continues to dominate her age group.

Millie put up an outstanding defence of her own British Taekwondo Federation title by securing the gold in Hereford recently.

The blue belt was moved into a heavier weight division this time but she stepped up to the mark during two sparring fights to take the top prize.

And there was a double celebration in the Yates household when younger sister, Hollie, claimed a bronze medal in her height group.

Millie then followed up her success at Hereford by winning the sparring event at the London Open for another gold medal and taking the silver in patterns.

Hollie, 11, was also on the podium thanks to a silver in sparring and bronze in patterns.

Millie trains at the TKBD School of Martial Arts in Bracknell where she is coached by Benji Oxtoby.

She has also taken on extra training with her uncle Nick Yates who works at The Ring in Bracknell.
