Church and Manor View Care Home in Doncaster sponsor local sporting here Macey Leigh Hennessy in her defence of her Taekwondo title.
At the Dutch Masters, Macey began her defence of her Gold Medal. Weighing in at 31kg, Macey was originally meant to fight in the 32kg category. However, there were no opponents in that category which meant Macey was moved up to fight in the 36kg category.
Macey claimed the bronze medal after losing out on one point to an opponent from the Netherlands.
Julie Harrison, Church & Manor View Care Home Manager, said: “We’re very proud of Macey. I’ve heard that she was a little disappointed that she didn’t win the competition, but seeing as she was fighting opponents who were a lot bigger than she is, and came third is a massive achievement. Well done Macey!”
