Lane Harris wins two silvers at kickboxing nationals

Everything was going well for Lane Harris at the World Kickboxing Association (WKA) Canadian National Championships in Edmonton last weekend, July 26 to 28. After winning his fights in both the K1 division and Muay Thai division at 189 pounds, Harris advanced to the finals of both, with good odds of coming back to Fort St. John with at least one gold medal.

Harris was winning the K1 final through two rounds, according to coach Justin Donally, where his shoulder popped out of joint. The fight was paused, and the doctor came in to check on Harris. Although Donally and Harris were able to pop the shoulder back into place, the doctor wouldn’t let Harris finish the fight, nor compete in the Muay Thai final that was still to come.

“I really think he would have won that fight, but the doctor did his job and you can’t really complain about it. Lane’s an animal and did great against some really tough competition,” Donally said.

Harris began training with Donally when he was 13. He left town for a period, but has been back a couple years and they’ve picked up where they left off. Harris is still new to the fight game, but has lots of promise in Muay Thai and MMA, and has a solid wrestling background. He also had his first boxing fight in April.

“My phone has been blowing up since Sunday with guys wanting Lane to fight their guy or on their cards. We’ll see what he does next,” Donally said.
