Competing in Italy at the World Thai Boxing Championship, Marcus Williams, a Y10 GCSE pupil at Bolton School Boys’ Division, has won a gold medal in the U16 category!

Marcus had a tough fight camp which was reduced to three weeks from six, having suffered a horrendous toe injury in training. Despite this, he cut his weight well in the competition and fought his way through to the final where he met a tough opponent from Israel. Marcus lost the first two rounds but woke up in the third to win rounds 3, 4 and 5 and, with the last rounds counting more in Thai Boxing, this was enough to secure him overall victory!
