A HIGH-KICKING hairdresser has scooped a bronze medal in an international martial arts competition.

Alice Maclean, a Level 2 Hairdressing student at Sussex Coast College, competed in the Commonwealth Judo Championships in Cardiff in January.

The 16-year-old, from St Leonards, has been learning judo since the age of five.

Her tutor, Tracey Griffin, said: “Beneath her modest exterior, Alice is a determined and talented sportswoman, not to mention a promising hairdresser.”

Alice said: “I really enjoy competing and hope to take part in more competitions.”
