SWAN View taekwondo athlete Shante Regnault (11) has won three-straight national titles despite just starting the martial art five years ago.

Regnault, who trains at ATI Martial Arts in Malaga, won the aged 10-11 years category at the national championships in Bendigo last month.

She won the same category last year and the aged 8-9 years category in 2016, along with three state titles to date.

The West Balcatta Primary School student was proud to have won her third national title because she “gave it her all”.

“I just like training hard with my teammates and trying to improve all the time and getting better,” she said.

“I train usually five days a week with the state team and at ATI Martial Arts.

“My goal is to go to the Olympics one day and just to hopefully do well in lots of competitions.”

She is currently preparing for an ATI competition in November.

Meanwhile, the Malaga club also brought home seven gold medals, four silver and seven bronze medals between its Poomsae and sparring teams at the championships.
