Students Scoop Silver in National Championships

November 15, 2017

Finlay (Yr10) and Eliza (Yr7) produced an outstanding performance at the British Taekwondo National Championships both securing a Silver medal and being ranked 2nd in the country in an extremely physical and mentally demanding competition.

Eliza fought older competitors in all matches. She won her semi-final on stoppage, which meant she was 21 points ahead already in the second (of 3) match round.

We are proud of their achievements showing great resilience to overcome any challenges they faced when up against fierce competition.
