While most training competitions have been canceled due to the ongoing pandemic, students at London Road Academy have participated virtually in the poomsae (forms) side of taekwondo.

During the Austrian Open, which brought together thousands of athletes from all over the world, Sarnia Olympic Taekwondo members Anika Botma and Eilidh Deery won gold together in the pairs / women’s team division as well one bronze medal each in the individual category. Ryan Knight won silver in his category.

At the first Poomsae Virtual National Championships – hosted by Dan-Do Sports in Canada – Sarnia athletes once again thrived with silver medals won by Ben Thomas, Carmendy Bambury, Vanshi Shah and Vanessa Vanhooft. Bronze medals went to Jashandeep Singh, Quinn Clarke, Quinn Kennedy, Ruby Waller, Melissa Greenbird and Julian Bacchus. Austrian Open medalists Anika Botma and Ryan Knight also won bronze medals in the competition, as did Sarnia Olympic Taekwondo Club owner Mark Warburton.

Warburton said he was very pleased with the results, noting that the students persevered during the blockages by training hard, both online and away. Online competitions have given students goals to stay motivated, he added.
