From the Netherlands - with medals, experience and inspiration for future victories (PHOTOS)
On January 25, the prestigious Taekwon-Do Class A Dutch Open tournament was held in Helmond, the Netherlands. 1,200 athletes, 100 clubs from 23 countries took part in it.
Ukraine was represented by 3 teams, including Uzhgorod athletes from the Korolovych team sports club, which brought five young athletes. We sincerely hoped that they would represent Transcarpathia and our city decently, and these expectations were fulfilled.
Thus, Polina Korolovych did 4 fights, defeated opponents from the Czech Republic, Norway, Ireland, but then, by the split decision of the judges, she conceded to a rival from the Netherlands, and thus took the 3rd place of the honorary tournament.
Dasha Korolovych took the 2nd place in the absolute category among juniors 1-3 dan, having defeated athletes from Ireland and England. The final was difficult, and in an even fight in the extra round Dasha lost to another representative of Ireland. Thus, she won silver medal of the Dutch Open tournament.
Congratulations to our athletes!
