Andy Des'a runs the club and is an eleven-time World Champion. At 47 years old, he was meant to take part in the Masters category but ended up in the mainstream 18-35 category, winning Gold.

He says the club is enjoying the success:

"The atmosphere is electric in the club at the minute. It's just going from strength to strength. And we're looking at a bigger venue. The kids are being inspired when they see the others coming back with gold medals. I'm astounded really I never thought we'd bring that many medals back".

Yorkshire Coast Radio would like to offer our congratulations to all at Desapline in Scarborough on their fantastic achievements!
