British Taekwondo announce Cadet European Championship Team

After taking on the running of the British Taekwondo Cadet Performance Programme this year, British Taekwondo are delighted to announce the team of young athletes that will represent Great Britain at the upcoming European Championships in Budapest in October.

The selection comes following the inaugural British Taekwondo Cadet Selection Championships, recently held at The Doncaster Dome, which was used as the selection event.

British Taekwondo Board Members Sarah Jennings and Mike McKenzie will lead the group and act as British Team Management. Sarah added that ‘British Taekwondo were given the opportunity to run the Cadet programme after funding changes at GB Taekwondo. In the first instance, we wanted to make sure our young members didn’t miss out on the chance to represent their country at the Europeans and are delighted to be able to take this team out to experience international competition. We look forward to further developing our Cadet Programme through these Championships and into 2018 ’.

The team will also be accompanied by a team of coaches and physio support, selected to combine a mix of international experience, that can be passed onto the team, whilst giving development opportunities for others.
