THREE local representatives from Shepparton Access and Koryo Taekwondo students have come away victorious from the Taekwondo National Championships held at Bendigo Basketball Stadium last week.
Dom Barlo, Damon Vasterink and Anthony Buonomo competed in the Taekwondo Poomsae Division and all achieved excellent results, with Dom receiving gold, Damon receiving silver and Anthony receiving bronze.
Koryo Taekwondo head instructor, Sammy Rachele said, “The Victorian Championships selection was held around four weeks ago, and the kids were selected to compete and we had pretty good results.
“We also had Koryo Taekwondo students, Jeg Clark win a gold and a silver, Chloe Harmer win bronze and Pirah Devani win silver.
“It’s the smallest team we had in the nationals in 10 years so to come away with such success is fantastic.
“Hopefully this is just the beginning for these kids.”
