Early season success for UoB Taekwondo

4 medals out of 4 for UoB Taekwondo at the Manchester Open Poomsae Championships

On Saturday 6th October members of Taekwondo headed up to Manchester to take part in one of the biggest Poomsae tournaments in the United Kingdom. With over 380 participants and a large number of international referees from Germany, Portugal and Northern Ireland the standard was exceptionally high, but club President Fabian Burkhardt led from the front. He secured third place in the individual Dan U30 male category, was part of the team that won the Dan U30 Male Team category and he joined up with Marianna Hurst to achieve a third place in the Dan U30 Pair category.

“With 4 medals out of 4 entries we couldn´t have dreamed of a better start of this season, but what makes me even happier is to see how much everyone in the club has improved in the last year. The hard work is finally paying off.” – Fabian Burkhardt (Club President)

The successes this weekend was an excellent start to this season, and now the club only need 50 medals to go to surpass their record 53 medals from last season!
