European Championships Update
09 Jun 2008
Congratulations are in order to both Connor Jones I Degree (ManchesterTKD) & Mr Johnnie Chan IV Degree (HuddersfieldTKD) on their achievements at the European Championships in Porec, Croatia.

Connor Jones put in a strong performance in both individual junior Pattern & Sparring, with progression to the second round of pattern in only his 1st European Championships. He was narrowly beaten in his sparring bout by the experienced Slovenian Competitor after suffering a knockdown. Unfortunately, there were no medals this time for Connor but watch this space!!

Mr Johnnie Chan unfortunately lost to Greenland in the 1st round of Individual Senior IV Degree patterns, but this is no disgrace as were sure many of you are aware that the Greenland competitor achieved a Silver medal at the last World Championships.

Mr Chan went on to achieve a second round spot in the -85kg Individual Sparring class by beating an Italian competitor and narrowly missed out on a Bronze medal having been beaten by the Scottish competitor.

However, there was some success for Mr Chan in the Male Senior Team events England achieved Silver Medal in Power Test & a Bronze Medal in Pattern.

Congratulations once again to our local boys!!
