I rise to congratulate Sienna Davies of Terrigal, who recently represented Australia abroad at the 43rd Shidokan open international karate tournament in Japan. Competing across several divisions, Sienna came third in point sparring and fifth out of 15 competitors in kata, a strong performance in the international arena by a young Australian athlete and a rising sporting star from the Central Coast.

Sienna also has a remarkable record prior to her performance on the international stage. In 2022, Sienna was awarded two Australian titles at the Australian Martial Arts Championships held in Port Macquarie, and this included a first place in point sparring and a first place in sparring freestyle. Sienna also competed at the 2023 International Sport Karate Association world cup in Liverpool, Sydney. Here Sienna continued her sporting success, taking out third place in kata and third place in point sparring.

Sienna now heads on to the International Sport Karate Association Australian National Championships and the Australian Martial Art Championships Australian Titles, where she will be vying to claim more national titles under her belt. To Sienna's parents Maria and Sean Davies, well done on supporting Sienna's sporting career. Sienna, you have made your country, community and family extremely proud. Good luck for your future sporting endeavours, and keep pushing for your goals.
