Wishaw Muay Thai star David Sinclair is gearing up to represent Team GB after a great ending to the decade.

The 18-year-old rounded off 2019 on a high with a win over experienced foe Paul Morris from Newcastle last month and is set to travel to the Baltic Championships in Lithuania later this month.

Last year the fighter won two bouts and a gold medal with the British squad at the tournament and he will get another chance to earn success as he makes the jump to senior level.

Proud dad Brian was delighted to see his son selected by the Brit coaches again.

He said: “David had a great 2019 and it wouldn’t have happened without the support of Guy Ramsay, owner and head coach at The Griphouse in Glasgow, his coaches at the Gym and the UKMF for selecting him for Team GB.


“David was sent to the IFMA World Championships to gain experience and what an experience it was.

“It’s probably the next best thing to competing at the Olympics for an athlete – with a a single sport having over 1400 participants from 102 countries.

“His trips to Lithuania and Thailand were helped by support from ClubSport NL and the North Lanarkshire Educational Trust, his sponsors STAMHA, CBD Bio Labs, Skrann73 catering and the fundraising efforts from his gym.”

Brian pointed out that David still required support from locals for the amateur sport.

He added: “Taking part in the tournaments is predominantly self-funded and David is hoping to be sponsored by one or more local companies.

“If interested in sponsoring David, please contact me on brian.sinclair@talktalk.net.”
