Here they are, the finals of the BUCS championships. Saturday kicked off with team events, team Birmingham (UoB) went off to a great start, i beat my opponent 8-0 and rest of the team sealed the win, we went through 2 more rounds and faced a strong team from Coventry in the semi finals, i fought a good fighter and put in a good performance but picking up a eye injury in the closing stages winning the fight a comfortable 7-1. in the final i once again won my fight 8-0 and the team came down to the very last fighter with team Birmingham taking the win and becoming the British University team champions, this is the first time the University of Birmingham have ever won a gold at BUCS and shows just what a bright future the team has. However i couldn’t compete the next day due to the eye injury, although it had got a lot better my coach decided it wasn’t the best decision for me to fight as blood was still in my eyeball. Plus with he senior Dutch open, a world series event, and  senior European Selections not too far away i had to think long term prioritize my busy schedule of competitions. No Doubt me a Team Birmingham will be back in force next year with me being named the captain of the team for next year.
