Karate student picks up gold for WP

17 September 2007

Good as gold: Thabiso Nkile, second from left, with WP team members at the recent Senior SA All Styles Tournament.

Student Thabiso Nkile won gold with the Western Province side that took part in the Senior South African All Styles Tournament in Pretoria in August.

Nkile took part in both the individual kata, where he made it through the first two rounds, and also took top spot in the 65kg kumite category, just edging out by 2-1 the same rival he fought in the final in last year's national student games.

"It was nice winning this tournament as I have always wanted to take part in it but due to school commitments and demands I have disappointed the Western Cape squad in the last two years," said Nkile.

WP also picked up the most number of gold medals at the competition.
