Brave Netherfield karate ace battling arthritis secures silver in top European competition

Bookmark

A brave karate ace from Netherfield still managed to secure a silver medal in one of Europe’s biggest competitions – despite battling with arthritis.

James Scott travelled to Kristianstad in Sweden and secured a silver medal in Northern Europe’s largest Karate Competition.

It’s been a tough few months for the karate champ who recently began treatment for rheumatoid arthritis.

James told Gedling Eye: “Training has been hard. But, I’ve eased off and played each day by ear. I came to watch this competition last year and it’s great to take part amongst so many counties.”

James hopes to be back training Monday at his karate school in Colwick.

He recently also received a provisional place at Loughborough University for a Masters degree in September.
