A huge MTS well done to Year 11 Tyler Derbyshire, who has been selected for the England national squad in next year’s IMMAF Junior World Championships.
Tyler’s amazing achievement came after he fought his way to a silver medal at the English National Championships on Sunday 3rd October.
Competing in a category of five opponents, the Year 11 student – representing the gym at SGB Rochdale – lost his first fight in a very tight decision.
Shaking off the loss and bouncing back in style, Tyler went on to win his next two contests with second-round stoppages, before finishing the day with a mounted triangle submission victory!
The silver medal win means Tyler has qualified to represent the team England squad and compete in the IMMAF Junior World Championships in Las Vegas in August 2022.
A phenomenal accomplishment and opportunity. Everybody at the school is immensely proud.
