Local Protea pair Tyler Hogan and Wian de Beer excelled at the recent AUSC Region 5 Karate Championships held at The Dome in Swakopmund, Namibia.
The dynamic duo from Suid-Natal Martial Arts Academy formed part of the South African team who competed against African countries which included, among others, Botswana, Namibia and Mozambique.
High standards of karate were on display and the South Coast stars did not disappoint, with both bringing home a bronze medal.
Tyler medalled in the 14/15 kata category while Wian won his bronze medal in the 10/11 above 45kg kumite category.
“We are extremely proud of Tyler and Wian as they continue to achieve such high standards in their karate for the region and the country,” said WKF Ugu Karate Chairman, Sensei Coenie Vrey.
