World para taekwondo champion Matt Bush returns to the game and is looking to add even more to his medal collection at the competition at the Chuncheon Open in South Korea.
Amy Truesdale (+ 58 kg K44) and Joseph Lane (-75 kg, K44) also participate in the Far East. Sports fanatics from all over the world can buy Olympic Taekwondo Tickets online to enjoy its stunning performances.
Welsh heavyweight Bush was Britain’s only competitor at the Paralympic Oceania Championships in Australia last week and won a bronze medal at + 75 kg, K44.
I don’t mind competing for back-to-back, said the Haverfordwest-born fighter. But getting closer so closely, with traveling, is hard for the body and the mind. The competition in the birthplace of taekwondo is always an additional motivation for British competitors.
My motivation is always the same, Bush said. Even if it’s good to fight in the taekwondo house. Korea is cool, the food, the place and the people are all great, even if it’s too hot to train!
But I’m just trying to remember that I can only control what I’m doing right now. Then I go over some points in my head and go to the carpet.
True champ – World’s #1 Amy Strikes, open Gold at Chuncheon:
Amy Truesdale confirmed her world-leading status by producing a gold medal-winning exhibition at the Chuncheon Open in South Korea.
His teammate and world champion GB, Matt Bush, collected his second medal in seven days with third place in the K44 competition of + 75 kg.
The victory was especially good for Truesdale, a Chester girl who won her tournament with a 58kg + K44 final victory over Brazilian world title holder Debora Menezes.
I beat my first opponent by a point difference, then defeating the world champion is a major asset for confidence.
“I have worked on certain targets in training to help my performance and I feel I executed them really well. I have a training camp now before flying to Jordan for another tournament later this month.”
Truesdale, coach of Manchester, missed the recent Australian title Para Oceania Championship, where the heavyweight Bush won a bronze medal. The Haverfordwest fighter won a 22-1 victory over Morocco’s Raschid Alaoui to start the competition.
Refusing a place in the finals for Oceania at the golden point, Bush missed this time to win the gold medal after losing 13-11 to Russia’s Aliskhab Ramazanov in the semifinals.
London’s Joseph Lane has faced local favorite Jeonghon Joo in the last 16 games and lost 22-1.
