Fantastic Results at Bluewave Patterns Competition

On Saturday 1st June a small team travelled to Basingstoke for the Bluewave Poomsae Comp.
Master Naraine & Paul arrived early as they were officiating along with Jemma who volunteered to help out during the morning.
First up was Rio from Waterside who was competing as part of Dorset Tkd. Rio was in a very tough category consisting of several GB squad members. Unfortunately Rio did make it through to the final but gave a very strong & impressive performance.

Next up were the freestylers. Gabby was up first. This was Gabby’s first time competing in freestyle & the performance was great.
Jemma was up next for her freestyle & she gave a very controlled & confident performance.
Aidan competed in the boys category & gave a solid performance.
Jemma placed 2nd with a silver medal & Gabby 5th. Aidan came 1st in his category with a gold medal. Excellent results!

In the afternoon the remainder of the recognised poomsae divisions were underway.

It was Zak’s first poomsae competition and he did an excellent performance. Unfortunately missing out of the medals on this occasion but lots of potential for the future!

Diego took to the mats gave an impressive performance in a very close division. Diego came away in 3rd with a bronze medal!

Jemma also competed in recognised poomsae. This was again another close division & Jemma came 3rd & gained a bronze medal.

Master Naraine gave a great performance in a tough category and finished in 5th position, just outside of the medals.

Last to compete was Gabby in an extremely tough category, again against several GB squad members. Gabby kept her composure & made the cut & got through to the final. This in itself was an amazing achievement.
In the final Gabby managed to increase her position & finished in 7th. No medals this time but a great accomplishment considering the level of the competitors.

Overall a fantastic day for the team. Some great results & wonderful support for each other! Lots to work on ready for the next competition!!
