We have some exciting news to share!
Following a vigorous selection process over the festive season, British Taekwondo are pleased to announce the National Poomsae Squad for 2021.
More than 200 athletes took part in the selection event held with our national high performance coaching team, due to the pandemic and national lockdown this was held via Zoom.
From these, 100 athletes from 37 clubs were selected into the squad for 17 different age group categories ranging from 9 years old through to 72 years old, showing Taekwondo is a sport for all!
Our coaches have selected the athletes very carefully as we plan over the next four-year cycle through to the end of 2024, with our more experienced senior athletes complimented by a pipeline of talented junior and cadet athletes. From the national squad, athletes will be selected to represent the Great Britain National Team at future major events through to 2024 which will include European and World Championships.
In addition to this, para athletes from across the country put themselves forward for selection into the Para Poomsae National Squad, and today we are also pleased to announce the National Para Poomsae Squad for 2021. From this squad, athletes will be selected to represent the Great Britain National Para Poomsae Team at future major events which will include European and World Championships.
