Abbi, who won the title in her category last year, trains with the Rick Young Academy in Edinburgh.

This year the championships, which some consider to be the world championships, attracted over 1,200 entries from around the globe, and on this occasion Abbi was entered in a section which was the biggest she had ever competed in.

Abbi, who is the current British and European Champion, went on to claim a bronze medal, and afterwards mother Lani Todd said: “I am so proud of Abbi. She fought her heart out to take the bronze medal.

“Thanks to everyone at Rick Young’s Academy and everyone back home for their help and support. It is much appreciated.”
