Posted onPosted on 23rd May

SUTTON youngster Lyla Easom (above) is a national sporting champion.

The nine-year-old came away from the largest Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competition in the country, the British Open, with a gold medal.

Lyla, a pupil at Croft Primary School, trains at the 5 Rings Grapling Academy, Sutton.

In the competition at the Coventry Skydome Arena, Lyla was in the under-38kg, grey belt, 8-9 years category.

Proud dad Damian Easom said: “She did amazingly well and took home the gold medal.”

In the past the youngster has received support from The Armchair Club, a group of Mansfield businessmen who help raise and distribute financial support to benefit local sports people.
