Abbi Rae and her coach Rick Young, who both won gold.

Abbi, who trains in Edinburgh, competed at the championships, which were held in Lisbon, Portugal last weekend, and for the first time she competed outside the junior levels, where she had won gold in the past..

Abbi competed in the Juvenile 2 blue belt and there were five in her bracket, which meant she had to win two bouts.

For the first time she also competed at the same event as her coach, Professor Rick Young, and both took gold medals in their respective categories.

As always, Abbi would like to thank everyone for their support along the way.
