Young karateka attracts Digicel sponsorship for international duty
Digicel has always proven itself to be a good corporate citizen, supporting its words with action. Such evidence was once again exemplified yesterday afternoon when executives of that organization paused from issuing corporate assistance to the horseracing community at the Herdmanston House, Peter Rose Street Queenstown, to offer similar assistance to members of the Guyana Karate Association (GKA).
The recipient of such benevolence was a young karateka, Tyler Orderson, who joins 24 other karatekas on a national team scheduled to participate in the World Shotokan Karate tournament in Canada from July 3-8 next.
Tyler’s dad, Wayne, accepted the gift on behalf of his son and thanked his benefactor for the support. He later informed the media that the local practitioners would be contesting several categories including kata, kumite, embu and Bonka.
