CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR NEW WORLD CHAMPIONS
VICKY JONES, LUKE METCALF AND HUE DUONG
The 11th Tae Kwon Do International World Championships took place at the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham on 16 & 17 July 2106. Several of our students took part and came back with a host of medals.
Vicky Jones won Gold in the Ladies’ Black Belt Flyweight Continuous Sparring division after being beaten to Silver by just one point in the Point Stop division the previous day. Luke Metcalf took Gold in the Men’s Black Belt Lightweight Continuous Sparring division and also took silver in the Point Stop division. Hue Duong took Gold in the Men’s Yellow Belt Welterweight Sparring. Luke also helped the England Mens’ Team to become World Champions in the International Team Event. Well done to our new World Champions, you have all put a lot of hard work into your training and your success is well deserved.
Other medal winners included Ross Hanley and Harry Miles who won bronze and silver medals respectively in their tag team events.
Well done to everyone who took part, it was a great experience and I am very proud of you all.
