Transmec backs young Thai boxing star
Young Thai boxer Ellie ‘the Punisher’ Pardy is aiming to reach the top of her sport – with a little help from Transmec UK.
The 14-year-old has shown her potential by winning a string of junior Muaythai fights since she started at the age of six.
Already catching the eye of Team GB selectors, she travelled with the squad to compete in Lithuania earlier this year.
Sponsorship from Transmec will help to cover the costs of taking part in events held around the UK and elsewhere in Europe.
“I just love everything about the sport – the people, fitness and the fighting,” said Ellie, who is from Redditch.
“I’m really dedicated and determined to do well. I’m very grateful to Transmec for their support.”
Ellie trains three times each week. Her ultimate aim is to compete at the 2024 Olympics in Paris if Muaythai gains full status after being provisionally recognised by the International Olympic Committee.
Transmec also sponsors another Redditch Thai boxer, 13-year-old George Rowand, who has also been selected by Team GB.
“We’re delighted to be sponsoring Ellie. Like George, she enjoys what she does and has the potential to go far. We wish her the best of luck,” said Phil Thomas, Transmec UK’s sales manager.
