European Poomsae Championships 2017 – Day 2: Turkey closes the event with 11 more titles

European Poomsae Championships 2017 – Day 2: Turkey closes the event with 11 more titles

Day 2 – Report
The first ever ETU European Poomsae Championships held in Greece, came yesterday to an end at the Palais De Sport stadium in Faliraki, Rhodes Island, Greece.
The age of the competition categories ranged from cadets until over 65, proving that taekwondo is a style of life no matter the age, the sex or nationality. Cadets showed that the next taekwondo generation sets the rank higher, while the competitors over 65 are the proof that one can practice taekwondo for a lifetime. Among the highlights of the whole event was the teams of males, females and mixed teams, whose synchronization looked a multiple frame in motion.
For one more day, Freestyle Poomsae was the one that standed out. The “choreography” of the athletes combining Poomsae with music, acrobatics and the necessary amount of artistic touch, is being seen as the most popular and entertaining for the spectators.
In total 231 athletes participated during the last day of competition in an overall of 18 competition categories where the leader in medal rankings was for both days Turkey National Team. In total the Turkish representatives managed to achieve 17 medals; 11 of them being gold.
