A TEENAGER from Worsbrough triumphed in a prestigious taekwondo competition - winning gold in her category.

Laura Watson, 12, trains at Horizon Taekwondo Academy in Bradford three times a week with coach Rich Simpson.

Her hard work has certainly paid off when she won gold in her category at the British Taekwondo Nationals in Manchester.

The Barnsley Academy student is now number one in the UK for her height and weight.

She has also been selected to join Team GB.
