The J H Kim TaeKwon-Do Institute took a team of 14 people plus coaches and a team manager to the PUMA World Championships on the weekend of the 7th 8th and 9th of March 2014.
The team consisted of:
Logan Mills, Alex Healy, Adam Gray, Ryan McSweeney, Rebecca Crawford, May Webber, Lilias Healy, Andrew Green, Dylan McSweeney, Andrew Quinlan, Scott Mills, Mark Healy, Fiona Barrett Burke and Faye Cooney.
We won 14 medals in total; 3 gold, 4 silver and 7 bronze. The team were fantastic ambassadors for the Country, the Institute, but most of all to themselves and their families.
The team was managed by Mr Joe Green and coached by Mr Kevin O' Donovan, both of whom did a great job. It goes without saying that every student gave tremendous support when a fellow team-mate was in the middle of battle. This just showed the togetherness which has emerged within the institute.
A very special mention must go to Philip Gray who travelled to support the team and did trojan work with the gear and minding anything that we lost!!!.
On behalf of the J H Kim Institute I want to say that it was a pleasure to see you all do so well and to see you all earn respect form other competitors and students. I can say that it a very successful event for the Institute. I think we have made a lot of contacts for the future.
