Seven Benalla fighters excelled at the taekwondo state selection Victorian championships last month.
On August 11, seven Benalla fighters travelled to Melbourne to compete in the taekwondo state selection Victorian championships.
This is a mandatory competition for those wanting to fight in the Australian championships.
Cassidy Mailer fought in the girls’ eight to 10 years red belt division; she dominated the fight for both rounds and came away with a convincing win and the gold Victorian medal.
Ella O’Gorman fought in the girls’ eight to nine years yellow belt division and displayed very good technique and sportsmanship to come away with the silver medal.
Adam Lee fought in the eight to 10 years yellow belt boys’ division. He gave it all he had and did extremely well for his first competition, and received the silver medal for his efforts.
Aiden Turner fought in the 10 to 11 years boys’ red belt division, in two fast-paced fights.
Turner did extremely well and showed great stamina and technique to win the silver medal.
Sam Symes fought in the women’s 19 years and over blue belt division, but as there was a lack of competitors in this division, Symes was put up into the black belt division. Despite fighting someone with more than double her experience, Symes put up a fantastic display and won the first round with a convincing lead.
Her fight ended after a sudden-death fourth round in which she was narrowly defeated, and received the silver medal.
Leigh O’Gorman fought in the blue belt men’s open division 87
Paul Wood was also moved up into the black belt seniors’ open division, and despite fighting hard, came away with the silver medal.
This was a very positive outcome for the Benalla club with some great performances by all those who attended, and all were rewarded for their dedication to training.
