Umina boxer set for the Commonwealth Games
Umina PCYC boxer Anja Stridsman is set to represent Australia at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in April 2018.
Strdisman won a Gold medal at the Australian Amateur Boxing Titles held in Punchbowl in the 60kg elite female division which qualifies her to represent Australia at the Commonwealth Games.
She had two bouts and won both on points.
Her selection as part of the Commonwealth Games team adds to her international experience.
Stridsman previously won Gold at the World Ringside Tournament in America as well as several other international tournaments.
Her latest win is even more remarkable considering she seriously injured her knee competing in an international tournament in Poland just before the Australian Titles and had surgery immediately following her win at the Australian Titles.
Coach Mr Joel Keegan said: "Anja is a strong chance for a medal".
Keegan has trained multiple State and Australian Champions at his gym at Umina PCYC including World Junior Champion Satali Tevi Fuimaono.
