PORTLAND Kyokushin Karate Club produced an impressive double at the Australian Championships on Saturday, with members Rachel Ralph and Jenny Errey claiming gold and silver respectively in the Fifth Kyu and below non contact division.
It was a repeat of the pair’s performance at the Victorian Titles earlier this year, where Ralph edged out Errey in the final.
It was the first time Portland had competed at the Australian Championships in the sport, with fellow members Sally Morton and Chaminda Bandara also competing across the weekend.
Both Ralph and Errey had attended the National Training Camp earlier this year, through which they had met a large number of their opponents across the weekend.
