A huge haul of trophies from the Ambassador's Cup

The Ambassador's Cup, organized for the second time, gathered taekwondo people to compete both in movement series and in a match in Vantaa's Tikkurila on November 12, 2016. Taekwondo athletes had a strong representation in both forms of competition, and we can be very satisfied with the day's performances.

Competitors at a good pace

The taekwondo athletes had no fewer than 29 representatives in the match series, so there was enough excitement for the whole day. The huge trophy haul shows that there were enough top moments and successes. A busy coach doesn't quite notice all the tricks, but at least Paul remembered Venne's gutsy three-win fight for a series win, Lauri's accurate spot-kicks, Iines' ferocious kicking power, Jenny's tremendous self-confidence, Janika's tactical skills, Plum's solid work ethic, Aleksi's will to win, Bardia's struggle against the Estonian hurray, and Jaden's , Markus and Kaisla's brave first contact on the national competition mats. Many other things also fell into place, and as said, one coach's eye is not enough to see everyone.

Sampo, Pauli, Juho, Riina, Petteri and Teemu were responsible for the coaching on the match side. The exchange of words between the coaches after the games was very positive. As the season draws to a close, many goals can already be considered fulfilled for the fall. Another big thank you from the coaching team to all the competitors and congratulations on your success!

An efficient and stylish team in the business series

The team of taekwondo athletes got in shape for competition under the treatment of the team's official stylist, Somporn Kopisto. The team was easily the most stylish of the games and there was no doubt about their efficiency. The coaches are Juho Ranta and Essi Labart. Of course, Essi managed to grab gold in both of his series before this. In general, the upswing of business series athletes that continued throughout the fall continued again at the Ambassador's Cup. Essi was satisfied and proud of the team's performance, and Juhokaa did not spare hyperbole in his later report.

The club and the coaching team congratulate the winners!

Teemu in Hesar


Teemu at the World Championships - defeat in the second match

After the first match.
After the first match.

Teemu Heino started his competitive career nicely by beating the young Serbian Relja Prosenicka with a score of 5-0.

In the second round, the silver medalist of the London Olympics, Gabon's Anthony Obame, was stronger 0-1. The judges reeled for a long time about the back spin hit of the 3rd set, but did not accept it as a point performance. Teemu's career ended with this match.

Obame continued to the final and became world champion.

Teemu's performance can be considered good. Returning from a serious injury to the top of the world has been successful. It will be interesting to see if Heino will also represent Finland in the spring European Championships.

Teemu Heino represents Finland at the World Championships

logotypeTeemu represents Finland and TU11

Taekwondo athletes 2011 are strongly represented at the World Championships. Finland's second representative is Teemu Heino in the men's +87 kg category. Another representative is Budokwa's Suvi Mikkonen.

Teemu has a tough race ahead of him, especially since the recovery from the surgery after the injury dragged out the decision to participate until the end. However, the finishing has gone reasonably well and the match style has also found new elements. At least success is not dependent on experience, as Teemu is the competitor with the longest career in value competitions in one tournament with Lopez from the USA.

Juho Ranta takes care of the athletes' well-being

The technical team includes Juho Ranta, who in his capacity as a physiotherapist treats both athletes to peak condition before the competition. Since the Finnish team is small, there are many tasks and the title of physiotherapist is quite broad.

Teemu will fight on Friday 19.7.

Every Taekwondo athlete naturally has their thumbs and big toes up when Teemu grapples. You can probably also follow the matches online, although the time difference presents its own challenges.
