Britain’s Rebecca McGowan and Caden Cunningham won bronze on the second day of the World Taekwondo Grand Prix.

McGowan, 22, who won European gold last year, suffered a semi-final loss to Puerto Rico’s Crystal Weekes after a run to the +67kg last four.

Cunningham, 19, defeated former European silver medallist Daniel Ros on his way to a debut Grand Prix bronze.

However in Rome, three-time world champion Bianca Walkden was beaten in her opening +67kg bout.

The 30-year-old Walkden, ranked number one in the world, went down to Spain’s Tania Castineira in the last 16.
