Emma has won gold in points, continuous, full contact and eam Sparring (a first for any Irish competitor). This is a huge achievement for Emma and Shannon. The world championships are very competitive and see the best competitors in the world compete against each other. For Coachford to have two young girls competing at this level is something the whole community should be very proud of.
