A martial arts ace had more than one reason to celebrate when his talents notched him up a double victory.
Daniel Battrick, 12, the current British Kickboxing Champion won a gold medal last Sunday in a tournament held in Manchester.
His victory followed hot on the heels of him winning the Rising Star Award in the Hyndburn Sports Awards 2010.
Daniel, nicknamed Dynamite, has won 50 ring fights and has taken home three English titles.
He has also won every open championship for the past two years.
Daniel also teaches the martial art at several after-school clubs including Martial Arts 4 All in Accrington.
Earlier this year, Daniel, who is based at the Fit to Fight camp at Back Wellington Street won the full contact British Kickboxing Championship earlier this year following a unanimous points decision at the New Era Complex, Accrington.
His proud dad Billy said: "He is determined to go all the way to the top in his sport and he trains five to six times a week and he is looking forward to more challenges next year."
Daniel is a pupil at Mount Carmel RC High School, Accrington.
Billy said the club would like to thank sponsors Hurns Catering of Nuttall Street, Accrington and Cuisine World of Church Street, Accrington.
He added that club fighters Steven Barnes, Hammayoon Kasser and Brandon Hargreaves had also had successes in the Manchester tournament.
Steven won a gold medal in the men's section while Hammayoon and Brandon came home with silver medals.
