North Devon member Day brings 85kg-class medal back from Switzerland
North Devon Kickboxing Club’s Jim Day won silver at the World championships in Geneva, Switzerland.
Day, who lives in Bideford and who has been at the club for three years, fought his way to the final of the 85kg category, where he was eventually defeated by a Polish fighter by a narrow points margin.
The north Devon member, who trained in Manchester before moving to Bideford, took on competitors from as far afield as America and Russia at the World United Martial Arts Federation event.
His was one of 74 medals brought home from Switzerland by the GB squad.
