Congratulations Charlie – Taekwon-do European Championships 2018

John Kelly, one of our talented lorry drivers at HG, was flying the ‘proud Dad’ flag recently as his son Charlie was selected to represent England in the 2018 EITF Taekwon-do European Championship.  What an amazing achievement!

This year the Championships were in Tallin, Estonia.  Charlie looks great in his kit, Hereford Galvanizers was pleased to purchase all his new kit for the competition.

 

Charlie travelled with the England squad, he had a tough sparring bout against a seasoned junior from Slovenia.  Charlie scored some great points but unfortunately lost out.  The standard at the Euros is very high and this was Charlie’s first time representing his country.

Charlie has shown he has real potential for the future and he cannot wait to try out for selection next year!
