YOUNG competitors from Worcester’s Iron Fight Club secured medals at the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Junior World Gi and No Gi Championships.

Nine competitors joined more than 2,000 from many countries in Wolverhampton.

Oskar Ptasinski, 11, starred with a no gi gold medal on the second day after claiming silver on the first.

Norbert Ligorowski, 10, and Nicola Krawczyk, 13, were also gold medallists in no gi and gi respectively.

Oscar Dyde, seven, Krawczyk and Darina Regina, nine, collected silvers in no gi.

Filip Pieta, 11, Charlie Miller, 10, Alfie Miller, eight, and Jan Tucholski, 10, added to the club’s success with bronze medals in gi which involves grappling with the traditional uniform.

Head coach Piotr Ptasinski, the father of Oskar, said: “This was an amazing day for our team.

“Part of the group started training in Brazilian jiu-jitsu four to five months ago while the other half I could say are veterans.”

A team of teenagers from the city club also went to San Pietro, Italy, with boxing coach Bethany Trueman to compete in mixed martial arts.

Lukasz Kutko performed well but lost on points to an experienced opponent from Italy.

Wiktoria Tucholska’s fight was cancelled as her opponent failed a medical.
