Team UK finished 10th with no less than 20 medals, one gold, three silver, three bronze and 13 medallions of excellence.
22 year-old Jordan Charters won his place in Team UK after a great performance in the Crown Trade Apprentice Decorator of the Year contest, in association with SkillBuild, in 2015.
