NZ Medal tally:
18 Gold
15 Silver
12 Bronze
45 Medals in total

The World Cup is the first major event on the Taekwon-Do calendar since the New Zealand team had overwhelming success at the 2011 World Championships, held in Wellington.

New Zealand took a team of 54 athletes over to Brighton, England for the 2012 World Cup event. It is an open tournament, featuring the very best Taekwon-Do practitioners from around the world. It ran for four days, testing the competitors in all aspects of the martial art.

The results are excellent for New Zealand. Our seasoned athletes have maintained their position at the top, while many younger and less experienced team members have shown a great depth of talent in the team.

Some of the newcomers took away gold, fighting through opposition from places such as Poland, Slovenia, and Scotland. At the same time our veteran members held up their end of the team, taking away gold in the 46+ age group.

Congratulations to all ourc ompetitors, managers, Coaches and supporters!
