Great fights at the end of year 2001 in České Budějovice
Ondřej Vrábel, 8.12.2001 – About 214 competitors from 22 taekwon-do schools from Czech republic, Slovenia and Croatia have come to České Budějovice to took part in III. Christmas championship youth Naeryo chagi school.
Sonkal, at last taekwon-do competiton in this year, was represented by 16 competitors, all of them in kids cathegory. Starting in this competiton was pretty new for lot of them, because of getting higher grades after grade test on Thursday. But we could rely on our Official Czech national champions Pavel Zavadil and Linda Deutchová, who won in 2.-1.kup patterns cathegory. Third gold medal added Lucka Kolmanová, defeating next our competitor Pavla Dvořáková. Dominika Bardonová, who changed cathegory after grading, took 3rd place in patterns (kids female 4.-3.kup). We are glad about practicing of Lukáš Topol and Ondra Škácha in male kids 8.-7.kup cathegory. Ondra could be in final, but his own mistake cause his defeat – next time everything will be better.
In sparring we trusted in Linda´s skills, but during her first match with opponent, she was able to defeat without problems, Linda´s broken arm bone, broke also our plans.
