Phoenix winning Gold medal


Training and competing is now part of Phoenix’s life with training up to 10 hours per week and regular competitions with travelling in Europe.

Phoenix attended the Austrian Open competition on the 2nd and 5th of June and this was a G1 competition so of a very high standard. Phoenix had three tough and challenging fights but dominated her opponents and showed great courage and focus to win. Phoenix won her first fight 11-1 and her second fight 18-6 and again won her final fight 7-3, which secured Phoenix Gold! Phoenix’s opponents were of a high standard and already part of the GB National team. So phoenix did incredibly well to win. She is showing such potential as Phoenix had already faced this same opponent and beaten her in Germany earlier this year too.

Phoenix’s parent's Hayley and Rob Goodman said after the competition,

"We're very proud, especially as it was such tough competition! Phoenix loved her whole experience in Austria and is so very grateful to be able to travel and compete as she is now able to with thanks to Innovation Visual’s support’."

Phoenix's coach Master Joe Brown said;

"British Tae kwon do Schools Phoenix had 3 top class matches and dominated her opponents with a thoughtful, clever game plan that was executed with incredible skill, calm aggression that was accompanied by an awesome fighting spirit where she showed no Fear and was also not arrogant or complacent in her attitude!! Well done it always comes to those who keep trying and wait !!"
