Success for Midleton at ITF World Championships

Midleton Club Instructor, James Dwyer, has returned from the ITF World Championships, Argentina 2018, as the new Senior Heavy Weight World Champion!

After becoming the Adult Middle Weight World Champion in Korea, 2010, James took a break from international fighting to concentrate on instructing, but decided to step back into the arena two years ago in preparation for this event. Facing tough competitors from Japan and Czech Republic in the opening rounds, James had to then beat two home favourites, fighting Argentinean opponents in both the Semi Final and Final before ultimately bringing home the gold for Midleton and for Ireland!

The ITF European Championships 2019 will be held next summer in Ireland, with the next World Championships taking place in Russia 2020, so the Midleton Taekwondo Club will remain focused, ready to bring home more gold!
