Taekwondo Trio Take The Gold

Fulston’s Taekwondo trio have done it again! Hannah, Rhys and Josh, all took part in the PUMA International Open Taekwondo Championship on Saturday 17th February in Swindon. 1st Dan, Hannah, competed in both Patterns and Sparring and won a gold for Patterns and a silver medal for Sparring. Brother, 6th Former Rhys, is a 2nd Dan and this was his first competition competing as an adult so was delighted to take the gold medal against older fighters. Joshua, and also a 1st Dan, fought really well beating all the other competitors in his category, including members of the England team and was more than pleased to take the gold medal. He said “This was the best competition of the year. My first fight was against someone who is part of the International Taekwondo Federation squad and who has been chosen to go to Slovenia, so I was really happy to beat him – I didn’t expect to take the gold!”
