Congratulations to Harriet Akeroyd for having been awarded Leeds University’s prestigious Sports Scholarship award. The award supports elite athletes as they combine academic and sporting excellence during their time at university.
Over 500 athletes from 20 countries competed at the Commonwealth Taekwondo Championships in Edinburgh last weekend. This was the first time the games had been held in Scotland and it was a full house of excited spectators at the Meadowbank Stadium where the championships were held.
It was that time again. Time for all those parents, grandparents, friends and family who sit on the sidelines every lesson to get up and have a go. What better reason than for such a great cause - Children in Need 2014!
Quest took a team to compete at the Austrian Open on the 31st May/1st June. Significantly cheaper flights, and the opportunity for a bit of team rest and relaxation, gave us the opportunity to travel out early Wednesday morning.
2012 Olympic Gold medalist Jade Jones, visited Quest Taekwondo at our Penistone venue on Saturday. The Taekwondo star, who has gained much notoriety since winning Olympic Gold at the age of 19 and subsequently being awarded an MBE in 2013, spent the day coaching Taekwondo athletes of the future.
