Medal haul by Andy’s girl

Andy Teller, Site Manager

SITE manager Andy Telfer’s seven-year-old daughter Mirren is showing her mettle in the world of taekwondo.

She won two bronze medals at the GMS Open Championships at Ravenscraig Regional Sports Arena in Motherwell on February 9, 2020.

The gongs have been added to the silver medal she scooped at the GMS Open Championships at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow towards the end of 2019.

Mirren, who has been practising the Korean martial art since she was just five years old, won her bronze gongs for patterns and sparring.

She is a member of McGowan’s Black Belt Academy in Hamilton and is a pupil at Udston Primary, also in the town.

Andy said: “She just loves sports and competing. Actually getting on the mat at competitions is quite an achievement and would be intimidating to any adult, let alone a seven-year-old.”
