Walsin Brand Ambassador Leah McCourt is now an IBJJF (International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation) World Champion after her Gold Medal victory in her class at the World Championships in San Francisco at the weekend.
This achievement, coupled with the IMMAF World Featherweight Belt which she won in Las Vegas in July, marks Leah as one of the leading MMA prospects in the UK.
Leah, at just 24 years old, now has a list of accomplishments in grappling and amateur MMA, marking her as ‘one to watch’.
Putting aside a broken thumb, Leah won the gold in the NoGi competition and picked up two submissions and a points victory on her way to the gold medal.
Our girl is proving that the sky really is the limit and we are extremely proud of what she has achieved!
