Christchurch Olympic Taekwondo received:

The trophy for the club that won the most medals and the trophy for the blackbelt best poomsae won by Christine Castro.

As a young girl, I got interested in Taekwondo. It started as a summer activity, but my Instructor coach told me that I have the potential to be a good taekwondo jin, Since then I started to train hard and had the dream to compete locally but as impossible it seem at that time; to compete overseas.

Last March 26, I arrived in NZ as a 2nd dan black belt and immediately joined the Christchurch Olympic Taekwondo. I found out about the South Island Taekwondo Championships in June. I readily expressed my intention to join in the tournament both in Poomsae and Kyorugi.

Last June 4, 2016 in Blenheim, I participated in the tournament. I was so nervous and excited at the same time. It’s my first time to compete in NZ. Through the guidance of my Poomsae & Kyorugi Instructors (Anita, Rafa, Nic and Tom) I was able to win 5 golds, and the black belt division individual Poomsae, pair category, team and most especially the much coveted Best of the best black belt division trophy. I was fortunate to also win in my kyorugi match against much taller opponent. Having a height disadvantage, I had to resort to using speed to score head shots. I’m thankful, that even my legs were tired from the poomsae tournament earlier that day, I won with a score of 18 - 4.

All the hard work and perseverance in training paid off and I look forward to the National Championships this September in Christchurch.
