TWO teenage members of Downend Boxing Club competed at the Golden Girl tournament in Sweden.

One of them, Ellouise Challenger, from Bradley Stoke, reached the final, where she defeated Sandra Marques, from Portugal, to take the title.

The other, Georgia Williams, from Stapleton, took on Felicia Liljenberg, of Sweden, and lost on points.

Ellie said: “I was well pleased having got to the final, and then I won and was over the moon.”

Craig Turner, coach at the club, which is based at the former Harry Crook Centre in Fishponds, said: ”Ellie has only been with us a short time and has won the national development title and now this prestigious championship.  I think she really has big things in front of her.”
