The UK team’s performance overall at the games
Overall, United Kingdom university athletes won three medals in Kickboxing, two in Karate, two in Judo and a fantastic nine in Taekwondo at this year’s European University Combat Championships (16 in total). Across all 21 EUSA Championships sports, students from 15 different UK universities secured 31 medals.
The UK’s Taekwondo team proudly represented each of their universities, the British Student Taekwondo Federation and British Universities and Colleges Sport, showcasing their professionalism, passion and dedication throughout. The athletes expressed gratitude to the officials, BSTF team managers, coaches, event volunteers, local organisers and to BUCS’ Marc Forrest, for their wonderful support.
The EUSA 2023 European University Combat Championships proved to be an unforgettable experience for the UK universities team members, leaving them with fond memories, new friendships, and of course valuable competition experience and WT ranking points. BSTF’s team has set a high standard for university Taekwondo on the European stage, on and off the court. The team are eager to exceed these achievements next summer at the European Universities Games 2024 in Debrecen and Miskolc, Hungary.
