The 23-year-old added the Commonwealth middle weight division title to her world amateur and World Combat Games belts by defeating Canadian Ariane Fortin at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre.

And following her victory Hartlepool based Camerons, who have sponsored the local athlete since May 2013, invited her to the brewery.

“We had no doubt Savannah would do well at the Commonwealth Games and we are so pleased she was able to achieve her goal of winning a gold medal,” Camerons’ chairman & chief executive David Soley said.

“We first met with Savannah just before the London Olympics and agreed we would become a main sponsor after the games to help support her in further events throughout her career.

“We know Savannah was disappointed by her performance in the Olympic Games and to learn from this and go on to become the Commonwealth Games champion is an amazing achievement.

“Savannah has really done Hartlepool proud and we are sure she will go onto to achieve many more titles and medals.”

Savannah’s next bout will be the defence of her World Championship title in South Korea in November.

“I would like to thank Camerons for continuing to support me,” she said. “It is great having a local business as a sponsor and I really value everything they have done for me.

“I was injured on the run up to the Commonwealth Games so to return from Glasgow with the gold medal is one of my proudest moments”.
