Hard-working Hurry confident of Euro medal chances
Redbridge karate star looking to follow up Swedish success
Katie Hurry is targeting at least a bronze at next month’s European Karate Championships.
Hurry is currently working hard in training for the event in Switzerland in May and continued her recent success with a gold medal in the over-68kg Swedish Karate Open in Malmo – a triumph she found very difficult.
“It was a very tough competition,” said Hurry.
“There were a lot of European challengers and to win gold is a great achievement. It is a good building block and has given me a lot of confidence going into the European championships.

“Two years ago I won bronze, but last year I finished fifth. But I’ll go into the championships confident of at least getting in the medals.
“From now until the start of May there are training camps every weekend in the build-up to the championships, and although the training is tough it gives me the best chance of success.
