Omagh members add to their medal tally

OMAGH MMA enhanced their reputation as one of the best new clubs in the country by capturing five medals at the North American Grappling Association (NAGA) competition in Dublin last weekend.

NAGA is one of the largest grappling tournaments to come to Ireland and in recent years the likes of UFC champions Jon Jones and Khabib Nurmagomedov have taken part in the highly-regarded competition.

On Sunday Omagh members again mixed it with the very best in the business wth Cameron Clements striking gold.
Eoghan Teague and Eamon McCann both clinched silver while Kyle Maguire recorded an impressive double by winning silver and bronze.

In the final reckoning Omagh members won eight matches and lost four as they continue to make their mark at national level less than a year following their formation.

This latest success comes on the back of impressive performances at a number of other events including Forge Grapping Inter-club competition in Belfast.

A team of eight members travelled to the big smoke and captured three gold, one silver and three bronze medals in winning 17 of their 22 at matches.

The trio of James Convey, Clements and McCann struck gold in the 97kg, 91kg and 61kg categores respectively while Callum Cheung won silver in the 67kg section.

The bronze medals were secured by Adam Pratt in 91kg category, Brian Dennison at the 85kg weight and Maguire in the 73kg section.

Previous to that Omagh members also caught the eye at the Gaelic Athletic Martial Arts competition in Portarlington, with Adam Pratt and Padhraic Quinn both securing bronze medals before OMMA tasted similar success at a Trident Grappling event in the Antrim Forum.

The following week Maguire went one better by claiming silver at the Grappling Industries competition held in Dublin.
