Student Becomes Taekwondo Judge
Ieuan qualifies as Taekwondo Judge
Ieuan in Year 7 is now the youngest qualified Taekwondo Judge in the world at age 11! He is already a black belt in the sport and wanted to get involved in officiating. Therefore, he took part in a course to train as an official and is now a Level 3.0 corner judge but can only take part as a computer operator when he is 14 years old.
Well done Ieuan!
