Her free sparring win came in dramatic fashion with a triple overtime victory.

“Kaela is a very gifted, talented, hard working athlete,” said Kelowna Karate and Fitness sensei Paul Atkin.

“This is just the beginning for the bright star that has a huge future in the competition world with her skill-set.”
