Gold Medals for Izzy

Izzy W in Year 10 has twice won gold medals in junior Taekwondo championships in recent months. In October she represented her club, Evolution Martial Arts, in the BTF English Open Taekwondo Championships in Birmingham.

After many tough rounds she won a silver medal in patterns and a gold medal in sparring, in the blue belt junior (age 14 – 17) category.

In November she returned to the mat to represent her club in the ITF UK Open Championships in Guildford, where she faced tough opponents from the UK and abroad. Again she became a gold champion in patterns, in the junior category blue and red belts.

Izzy’s mum Barbara told us: “The victory was undeniable as Izzy has unanimously won every single round and has proven that with practice you can achieve perfection.

“We’re very proud of Izzy’s achievements but most of all we’re proud of her dedication, determination, courage but also amazing sportsmanship and support she has shown to and received from her team.”
