Successful week lived at The CAR ??La Loma??

From April 1st until the 8th, 2765 athletes participated in the World Taekwondo Open and the World Training Camp at the High Performance Training Center La Loma, in San Luis Potosi, Mexico.

??World Training Camp in San Luis Potosi, Mexico. was present participating as an official sponsor.  The event ended successfully with more than 5,000 participants including athletes, coaches and visitors.

High level athletes, very professional coaches and high vibrant fights could be the best summary of the experience lived during that week at La Loma.

The event concluded on April 8th in Mexico, and was the 6th edition of what had been known as one of the most important events in the world. One must highlight the fact that it was not organized by any Continental Union or National Federation, but just by one person, the Spanish Ireno Fargas, who has transformed the CAR La Loma into one of the most active centers in the world, gathering thousands of athletes throughout the year.

We should never forget that both the World Taekwondo Open and the World Training Camp counted with the support of the Mexican Taekwondo Federation and the Potosi Taekwondo Association, which gave the events an official character.
A total of sixteen countries participated and coaches and athletes admitted there was a high level of training and competition, which was always excellent.

Without any doubt the most outstanding team was The Military Team from Venezuela, with a high level of discipline and capacity (Poomsae and Kyorugi), led by the Lieutenan Angelica Becancourt who achieved the first place in the World Taekwondo Open.
