BROTHERS Tommy and Charlie Carter claimed medals at the

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Junior European No Gi Championship held in Wolverhampton.

The siblings, from Grove, only entered at short notice, but that did not affect them.

Tommy, aged nine, showed great technical skill as he won three hard-fought bouts on points to achieve a gold medal.

Charlie, 12, had to compete above his weight category and was up against more experienced competitors.

Thanks to an armbar submission, he achieved a notable bronze medal.

The boys are trained by their father Martin at the Devils Gym, Wantage, under the eye of instructor Richard Pether.
