Gold medal win for Kilgraston pupil
We are enormously proud of Kilgraston pupil Sophie who has just won a gold medal at World ITF Taekwon-Do European Championships.
Upper Fifth Sophie was the youngest person to take part in the Junior female black belt category at the online event, and is the newly crowned WITF European Patterns Champion.
Sophie said: “I am waiting on my medal to arrive and cannot wait to add it to my collection.
“Filming a pattern, submitting it, and waiting for the results is very nerve wracking. Being the youngest in the age category, I didn’t expect to place and was totally shocked to discover that I had in fact won.
“I have taken part in several competitions and received medals from competitions in the USA, Mexico, Australia, and all over Britain.
“Entering these competitions online has given me even more opportunity to compete internationally and be very successful. The team I compete with and I have been formally invited to compete in Mexico next year at the Mexican Open.Back to News
