Congratulations to all the above competitors for another wonderful showing in such a prestigious tournament. We doubled our gold medal tally from last year and probably would have done better in the Team Kata events had we not been forced into forming these teams on the day due to unforeseen circumstances; and well done to our excellent refereeing team who worked so very hard on such a long and very hot day.
