Day 3 & 4 of the 2013 Canadian Open conclude with some medal results for our team and a great overall performance.
Emilee competed in the Junior Female 52-55kg category and opened the day strong getting up 3-0 against a U.S. athlete, however fell behind from a few minor yet critical mistakes to drop the match in the closing seconds. Going into the repechage (bronze medal bracket), Emilee began the match 0-2 in deficit but stayed calm, delivered a clear head kick and then followed the gameplan 100 percent calm & precisely to soundly defeat a former teammate by a score of 7-4 to secure the bronze medal – including a spinning hook kick in the closing seconds of the bout – which despite making contact to the head, the judges removed the points.
Emilee takes a bronze medal in the Junior Female Welterweight category at the 2013 Canada Open, securing her 3rd place standing in the selections for the 2014 Youth Olympic Games qualification as well.
This bronze medal puts Emilee in 3rd place in the running for the 2014 Youth Olympic Games qualifier! – the fight-offs will be held later in 2013 to decide the team member for these qualifiers.
Lauren competed in the Junior Female 46-49kg category. Drawing a bye in the first round, her first match was against an American player who took silver at the recent US Open in Las Vegas. Lauren kept the match close and narrowly dropped a tight match by one point. Going into the repechage bracket for bronze, Lauren defeated a Quebec athlete by a score of 5-0 displaying a perfect game plan but lost 4-2 in the match for bronze to another Ontario competitor.
Jewelian from our Chatham team coached by Ryan Formosa, earned a bronze medal in the Cadet (12-14) heavyweight female division – being the only Canadian to medal in the division, earns her a spot on the Canadian Team for the upcoming Cadet Pan-American Championships in Mexico!! Congratulations!
On Day 4, the colour belt athletes competed. Charlie takes a bronze medal in Cadet girls green belt Poomsae (patterns) after a solid performance; Chloe takes a silver medal in Cadet blue belt girls’ sparring after an exciting 10-10 match in the finals where she closely dropped a sudden-death overtime round; and Chatham athletes Keegan and Brandon coached by Coach Formosa both finish with bronze medals in sparring for their categories as well.
Great job everyone!!!
Charlie takes bronze in Cadet girls’ Green Belt poomsae!
