LETITIA CARR ACHIEVES MEDAL FOR OCEANIA AT THE 2009 WORLD GAMES
Letitia Carr of Wellington competing for Oceania at the 2009 World Games on the back of her wins at the 2008 Oceania Championships becomes one of New Zealand’s most successful Karate Athletes, narrowly losing to Slovakia 6-4 in a thrilling final that until the last 25 seconds she was leading 4-1. Silver in the Open Kumite event is New Zealand’s first medal at a senior WKF Championships in more than 35 years of trying and we are sure it is just the beginning. At just 19 years of age Letitia will surely be a force to be reckoned with on the world stage in the future.
…..AND ANOTHER AT THE WKF JUNIOR & CADET WORLD KARATE CHAMPIONSHIPS
Letitia Carr of Wellington picked up New Zealand’s first medal at the WKF Junior & Cadet World Karate Championships, winning a Bronze medal in the 18 – 20 Years Under 60 Kg. Female Kumite division. This outstanding result topped off a great year for Letitia after having already won a Silver medal at the World Games in Taiwan in July 2009.
