Midleton European Champions

The IUTF European TaeKwon-Do Championships were recently held in Ireland, and Midleton TaeKwon-Do club sent out 17 of its students to represent their club, town and country. Having trained intensively for the months before hand, every single student was as ready as they could be, and from the 17 students that entered, they brought home an unbelievable 26 European medals, including 7 gold!

Out of the seven new European Champions for Midleton, four of them had been crowned National Champions earlier in the season. The first brother and sister combination of winners were Arnaugh and Verlene, who won the u17 traditional forms and the u14 advanced sparring sections respectively. The second brother and sister team, who all four were last year’s national champions, were Natalia and David who took gold in the u10 and u8 intermediate sparring sections, showing great skill and great determination.

Our three other European Champions were Dominika who won the u12 beginner section, Jakob who won the u8 advanced section, and the youngest of our champions at only 5, Alex taking gold in the traditional forms section and narrowly missing out on the double, won silver in the sparring. It has been a fantastic year for the Midleton TaeKwon-Do club, and instructor Mr. James Dwyer could not be more proud. The results stand testament to how hard everyone trained, and every single one deserved their European success.
