Czech national team leaves for World Championship
Ondřej Vrábel, 18.7.2006 – It was common that European championship precede World championship, so it is kind unusual that this year World championship will be first of these top international competitions. The best of Czech competitors will travel to Bulgaria (which hosted European champ. in 2004) to 7. Junior and 2. Veteran (above 40 years) World championship. Capital city Sofia will host world’s top sport taekwondoists from 26. to 30. of July.
Juniors will compete in patterns, sparring and special techniques, both in individuals and teams. New discipline on border of individual and team competitions will be self-defense in two variations: 1 girl against 2 boys and 1 boy against 3 attackers. Veterans will compete also in patterns, sparring, self-defense and in difference with juniors also in power breaking.
Last information available on organizer’s website says that they invited Korean demo team, which did shows for example in South Korea, Norway or on Senior World championship in Greece (2004). Also because of this we expect opening ceremonial to be really interesting. And you can look forward to our photos and videos.
Czech team will leave in two terms – 3 international referees leaves on Saturday (22nd July) to take part in special course explaining new sport rules for Taekwon-do ITF. Rest of team leaves Czech Republic on July 24th.
Sonkal also has its competitor in team for this tom championship – Linda Deutschová, is nominated for I. Dan patterns, special techniques and self-defense. She will be also in team for patterns and special techniques.
We will provide actual information through the championship and after we return you can also look forward some interesting videos.
We wish whole Czech team lot of luck and success.
