Two Larne kids are celebrating after picking up medals at the Taekwon-do UK Championships in Edinburgh.

Aimee McRandle (9) won two silver medals for sparring and patterns, while Joshua Lynch (7) collected a bronze for sparring.

The pair were competing as part of the 13-strong Northern Ireland national junior team, made up of kids aged between seven and 14 ranging from yellow to red belt holders.

The Northern Ireland adults team were also at the event and together they brought home a magnificent 49 meadals.

It’s not the first success the talented duo has enjoyed in Scotland. In March they won medals at the Regional Championships near Glasgow.

They train at Larne Leisure Centre each Thursday with Adrian Morton and twice a month in Belfast with Northern Ireland national coach, Leo Maguire.

Joshua and Aimee are now preparing for their next competition - the Northern Ireland Championship, which is set to be held in September.
