On Sunday 14 May, Charlotte Beck, Magdalene House Prep pupil, travelled to Cardiff to take part in the Welsh Open Taekwondo Championships. On the back of her recent 2nd place at the English finals she was keen to go one step better at this bigger competition.
A near faultless performance in the first round saw Charlotte secure automatic qualification for the yellow belt finals. She showed excellent skill, power and precision and was delighted to be awarded 2nd place, beaten only by the reigning English champion. Charlotte took up Taekwondo at Magdalene House where she attends the after school club. Coach Matthew encouraged her to start competing and she currently trains twice a week with the Mark Farnham School of Taekwondo in Wisbech.
