Bronze for Beth at European Taekwon-Do Championships
Thursday, 23 May 2013
Year 9 pupil Beth Hodkinson represented England in the European Taekwon-Do Championships in Sweden and came away with a bronze medal.
The three day event involved individual and team competitions covering technique and sparring. Bethany competed in the individual sparring category and the team sparring category. She won the bronze medal in her individual sparring despite being the youngest in the England team and competing against 16 and 17 year olds. In her team event she came away with a draw but unfortunately the team lost out overall.
Beth is now looking forward to competing in future events – the World Championships in October is now her next goal should she be selected.
