Amy Platten: European Cup This funding is to enable Amy, the current British Champion ( Cadet - 18yrs), to compete at 5 European Cup competitions, representing GB, and 4 training camps associated with the competitions. In 2015 Amy was selected, as part of the England/GB team, to fight in Spain (winning Bronze) and in Romania. These were fully funded but in 2016 they will only be part funded. Amy also travelled, with the England team, to fight in the European Cup in Portugal by self-funding in May 2015. Only by competing abroad and staying for the training camps that take place immediately after, will Amy improve and develop at national level. In 2016 Amy is aiming to compete in 5 European cup events, plus the Sportif International in Edinburgh, and gain selection for the European Championships in Finland. In addition to competing abroad, Amy will compete in numerous other UK ranking tournaments across the UK.
