Massive Medal Haul

A team of 24 from Oceanic Taekwon-Do Academy headed to Perth early in June for the AAITF State Championships.

The team returned home with 65 medals- including 22 GOLD. They competed against 80 competitors from all over the state.

Master Jason Bradley, who receives ongoing prefessional development from the Mid West Academy of Sport, said the competition matched his high expectations of his students. “ I expected big things from my team considering how well some went before in the Inspirit Invitational Tournament and in the training session leading up to the championships” he said.

“We had a tough couple of months of preparation concentrating on sparring drills and perfection of pattern techniques.”

One of the stars of the tournament was Bradley Hammond with three gold medals. Jett Bradley, Kylee Crabb, May Doncon, Jo Licastro and Katherine Ward were other multiple gold medal recipients. Rod Boon, aaron Kiddle, Ethan Taylor, Marc Christoffersen, Scott Potter, Kelsie Williams, Amara Owen and Tracy Williams also won gold.
