Looking back at the recent European Cadet Taekwondo Championships in Georgia, it certainly was a fantastic experience for GB’s promising young players and it gave us a positive indication that the sport is moving in the right direction.
There were some great performances from the team in Tblisi and none moreso than from Emily Watson who returned home from Georgia with a bronze medal in the -42kg category. She had two tough fights before losing in the semi final to eventual winner Patrycja Adamkjewicz from Poland.
A big thank you to the team, parents and all the staff involved in making the trip a success.
For those of you aspiring to be the next Cadet European Champion, dates will be released shortly for the start of new National Talent Squad for cadets – get your applications in!
