Skey was part of a seven-person squad – five competitors and two coaches – from the club that travelled to Reno, Nevada, for the championships.

She was the only competitor to return with a medal, which she won in the 13 years’ 33kg division.

Senior heavyweight competitor Jamie Gaymer won his first match against his Norwegian opponent, but lost to a 200cm fighter from Cuba in his next match.

Larnie Henness, Rodney Hartmann and Alana Broomer were knocked out after losing their first bouts.
