Letitia Carr takes Silver at the World Games!

Letitia Carr of Wellington competing for New Zealand at the 2009 World Games on the back of her wins at the 2008 Oceania Championships becomes New Zealand’s most successful Karate Athlete 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 tournament in more than 35 years of trying and we are sure it is just the beginning, at 19 years of age she will be a force to reckon with on the world stage.

A New Zealand team of 3 competitors, Letitia, Tamara Glyn of Fushin Ryu and Andrea Annacan of SKANZ competing in kata attended with coach Braedyn Birss, KNZ President Leo Donnelly and WKF referee Johnny Ling.
