Rhianna Wins Gold!
Thursday, 06 March 2014 22:43
Not content with putting in the hours swimming, young Rhianna Patel is also a Red Belt in WTF Taekwondo! Last Sunday 2nd March, the family traveled to Tongeren in Belgium so that Rhianna could compete at the 31st Open Challenge Cup Kyorugi. A long journey and a very long day but well worth it as Rhianna won an impressive Gold trophy!
This was her first fight using the electronic Olympic style body protector, valuable experience for the future. Rhianna has been training in Taekwondo for 4 years at the B J Academy in Abbots Langley and already this year she won Gold in the NTC tournament in Nottingham in February. Congratulations Rhianna, good luck for your next competition; but save a bit for swimming!
