Shane was the only Team Warrior athlete to take part in the competition, held in Rimini, Italy. Accompanied ITF England Head Coach Johann De Silva, he entered two categories: -84kg and -89kg light contact category. There was a very high level of competition and, with a different scoring system to get used to, Shane performed admirably in defeat against a top-class opponent in the first round. However, his efforts were rewarded in the -89kg category as he won bronze. Johann De Silva reflected on another successful tournament for Team Warrior. “It was a fantastic competition,” said the De Silva Taekwondo founder. “Shane performed very well and this competition will definitely be a regular on our competitive calendar.” Train with the likes of Johann De Silva at De Silva Taekwondo in Ealing, Wembley and Ruislip.
