2013 Victorian Selection Championships and WTF

Australian World Taekwondo Champion

Monday, July 22nd, 2013

The Koyro Taekwondo Centre would like to congratulate Carmen Marton on her magnificent achievement in wining a GOLD Medal at the 2013 World Championships.
We are sure that all Australians regardless of their organisation or sport will be so proud of Carmen.
Carmen Marton has just became Australia’s first World Champion beating Korea in the final 7-3.
Carmen beat WTF, China, Indonesia, Sweeden, Germany and Korea. 6 fights in total.
Hayder Shkara also competed today losing his first bout to Macau.
VIS taekwondo athlete Carmen Marton has created history by winning the first
gold medal for Australia in World Taekwondo.

The VIS scholarship holder
grabbed the gold medal, and fulfilled a long held dream, at the 2013 WTF World
Taekwondo Championships in Puebla , Mexico.
Carmen easily defeated
Korea’s H. L. Kim 7-3 in the women’s -62kg  final match to earn her country the
gold medal.
Experts say a World Championship title is even harder to win
than Olympic gold in this sport  because the traditionally strong nations are
able to enter more athletes.

Congratulations to all TeamAUS athletes!

Just over 10 years ago Carlson sat for his 1st Dan Grading and pasted with no problems, however, I only just got opportunity to present Carlson with his Kukkiwon Certificate. What a great young man his has grown up to be.
