The Adygeya republican team on Taekwondo got success at the Southern Federal District Junior and Youth sports championship. The competitions were held in Shakhty town of Rostov region, where the honor of Adygeya was defended by nine athletes - pupils of coach Sergey Lee.
Junior first place was occupied by Kadyrbech Daurov. Among the young winners of the championship there were Vladislav Manzhulov, Philip Belov and Bella Shhabatseva. Also, five our Taekwondo sportmen became silver medalists of the competition. As a result, in the team of Adygeya none appeared to be without a medal.
"We’d also expected the first place in the heavyweight category among youngsters, unfortunately that did not happen. But it is encouraging that in the junior weight category up to 59 kilos at the finale there were only our athletes. Now they have the right to take part in the championship of Russia," the Adygeya coach admitted.
All of our medals joined the squad of the SFD, which will take part in the finals of the Taekwondo championship of Russia. Among juniors it will be held in early February, in Taganrog town, and among the youth - at the end of March in St. Petersburg.
