Bronze for Bailey

Falkirk teenager Asia Bailey secured Great Britain's first medal at the European Taekwondo Championships after she won bronze in Azerbaijan.

The 16-year-old beat reigning champion Ioanna Koutsou of Greece en route to the semi-finals of the -45kg category on Thursday.

Bailey was beaten 5-0 by Ukraine's Iryna Romoldanova in the semi-finals.

Bailey said: "At first I was disappointed as I came here for gold. But now I feel proud of what I've achieved. I felt I got better with each match."
