Shannon Hawke took Silver in the international Kolbotn Cup competition held in Oslo at the weekend.  Katy Colebourne and Kelly Kay both won Bronze medals.

Laura Farrell lost her bronze medal match but placed 4th. 


The Kolbotn Cup is the largest wrestling event in Norway for girls and boys up to 23 years. During its 40 years the Kolbotn Cup has become a highly regarded event in Norway, and growing international participation shows that this competition has also a good reputation outside Norway.

Sweden, Norway, and Poland were the main countries competing although 13 countries in total participated in the competition.

Female members of the National Talent Squad wrestlers attended the event and were accompanied by Anatolii Kharytoniuk (Joint Head Coach of the National Talent Squad and England Development Coach) and Deborah Colebourne, Welfare Officer.
