BRITISH TAEKWONDO STAR SARAH STEVENSON SECURES QUALIFICATION FOR THE BEIJING OLYMPIC GAMES



Although still recovering from a broken hand Sarah sustained at the World Championships earlier in the summer, the former World Champion showed her very best form in reaching the final. With qualification already secured - the top three athletes in each category achieve automatic qualification to the Olympics – Sarah chose to avoid risking further injury and forfeited her final to take the silver medal.


Sarah said, “I am delighted to have qualified for the Olympic Games. I had a tough opener today against the reigning World champion, especially because I’ve lost to her in the past, so after I beat her I always felt pretty confident. I just hope that Tony and Aaron can follow in my footsteps and qualify over the weekend.”


Tomorrow sees double British Champion Tony Grisman (Kang Han Taekwondo Club, Mansfield) take to the floor in - 68kgs division while the other the other two categories to be staged will be the women’s -67kgs and the men’s -58kgs. Sixteen year-old British star Aaron Cook will be the last Britain to compete, with his fights scheduled for Sunday.


Andrew Link, Event Director said, “With over three hundred athletes from more than a hundred countries competing throughout the three days this is the largest taekwondo tournament ever staged in Britain. We couldn’t have asked for a better start to the event with Sarah performing so well and hopefully we can look forward to some more positive results over the weekend.
