Shepparton duo make Victorian taekwondo team

By Alex Mitchell

A Shepparton duo is doing its best to take over the Taekwondo world.

Koryo Taekwondo Shepparton members Riley Wooster, 8, and Ethan McKay, 14, who have made the Victorian team to contest the National Championships later this year.

Wooster pocketed a bronze medal in the boys 8-9 years individual Poomsae at the Australian Taekwondo Victoria State Selections, which were held late last month.

McKay performed just as admirably, winning both of his sparring bouts in the 12-14, 57-61 kg male class by technical knockout.

Both fights were stopped by the referee with his opponents deemed unable to continue.

This meant he took home the gold medal and a seat on the plane to the national titles.

The National Championships will be held from September 6 to 8 on the Gold Coast.
