AMONG THE ELITE: La Grande 12-year-old Kaven Musgrave took third in point sparring at the U.S. World Karate Championships. (The Observer/RAENELLE KWOCK).

La Grande's Kaven Musgrove, 12, took third place in point sparring at the U.S. World Karate Championships in Las Vegas this past weekend.

Musgrove beat four competitors to earn third place. There were 32 in the original division. It was whittled down to 12 competitors, who dropped down to the lower belts.

Musgrove said his second match went back and forth before he won it with a two-point kick.

He needed five points to win a match. There is a two-minute time limit for each match unless someone earns five points before the time is up.

Musgrove started karate when he was 6. He was second in the Western Nationals in Portland about two years ago.

He attends Greenwood Elementary. He plays soccer, football and basketball, but he likes karate the best.

"I like to have a challenge," Musgrove said. "I like to do something physical like sports.

He attends Dark-9 and has been training with Dallas Voss for three years. He also trained with Ken Johnson of Grande Ronde Karate and Kung Fu School for three years.

Musgrove said people from as far as France and Russia competed in Las Vegas. The championships in Las Vegas lasted three days.

Musgrove said he had to get a first place in one tournament in order to qualify for the championships. Musgrove is an orange belt.
