Whitney Tuna taking home her second state title after second knee reconstruction
Relive the moments Co-founder and co-director Whitney Tuna wins her second state championship after her second knee reconstruction in five years!
Whitney Tuna is a two time state Muay Thai Champion. Hailing from Perth Western Australia, Tuna found Muay Thai after her teenage years of partying, gaining excessive weight and losing confidence.
Since starting Muay Thai nearly ten years ago, Tuna has broken the mould for women being a role model for positive lifestyle, leading by example as not only a women’s health ambassador, but fierce competitor in the ring. She has won the WMC light bantamweight state title and most recently, the ISKA light bantamweight state title defeating Mikyla Baggstrom-Wild.
Despite her battles in the ring facing some of the best in Australia in her quest to become Australian champion, Tuna has suffered two knee reconstructions in the past five years. Through sheer willpower, determination, focus and hunger, she has bounced back to prove she has much more to give to the game that has given her so much. Whitney has defeated emerging stars such as Tia Steinhardt (QLD), Jada Ketley (QLD), Michelle Seivers (WA), Niki King (WA) and Spring Sia (VIC).
Keep an eye out for Whitney Tuna as she looks to solidify herself as one of the best in the country!
