Colin Mullane indicates: ” We are a local online company who were only founded in February of this year (Born2Transform Ireland) and

Born2Transform Ireland Sponsored Athlete Announcement!!!
The B2T Team would like to proudly announce Helen Cooney as a B2T Sponsored Athlete & welcome her to the team. B2T Irl Team Member, Colin, was on hand recently to present Helen with her Cheque & B2T T-Shirt for her trip to the World Championships.
Helen will be competing at the “World Kickboxing and Karate Commission World Championships” in Orlando Florida (http://www.wkcworld.com) from 6-10th November. She will be fighting in the Light Continuous Kickboxing Division. Unfortunately, it is an amateur sport, so everything is self funded so that is why B2T have come on board with Helen. She fought her way to a Bronze Medal last year in the same competition in Dublin & hopes to go harder & higher than that this year and aim for gold. B2T Irl are in no doubt that she will beat any fighter put in front of her and bring home a gold medal. She is the only Irish Fighter on the UK Team and she fights out of Shogun Martial Arts, Wakefield, Leeds.
