Taekwondo Cymru was fortunate enough to send the largest Welsh taekwondo team to the first ever President's Cup. Representing Wales, Sarah-Jayne Farthing and Maddie Davies stepped on the mats in Germany to battle it out against Europe's elite.
In the junior -59kg division, Maddie drew a tall Russian opponent. After 3 steady and controlled rounds, Maddie came short of winning the match but took away valuable experience.
The following day, Sarah drew the Turkish world bronze medalist in the preliminary round. In a high intensity and exciting match, Sarah bowed out to her more experienced opponent.
Both girls fought well and took a lot away from the competition.
They will next compete in the British Masters in London.
