Medal haul for taekwondo club

Taegeuk Taekwondo Club travels to Portland and garners six gold, a silver and three bronze

Talia Clarke scores a three-point head shot en route to gold in Portland on Nov. 7.

The Taegeuk Taekwondo club took its show on the road and came home with 10 medals, including six gold at the Pan American Taekwondo Club Championships in Portland on Nov. 7.

Club coach Michell Ge said the team built momentum from the opening match as black belt Arianna Caredda defeated a long-time rival from Washington in the 30-kilogram division.

“They have fought together countless times and loss after loss, it never deterred Arianna’s fighting spirit,” said Ge.

Caredda won the match 10-0 and went on to set up the team spirit and the momentum for the rest of the day, said Ge.

Caredda went on to win gold. Joining her on top of the podium was Talia Clarke in the black belt 47kg division, along with Rodrigo Herrera at 53 kg, Santiago Herrera in the junior boys’ 63-kg division, and Ashlyn Arnold in the junior girls’ 63-kg division.

Black belt Kyler Arnold took home silver in the 45-kg cadet boys’ division, while Malakai Ayi-Bonte won bronze in junior boys’ 63-kg, along with Drew Clarke in youth boys’ 30-kg and Jacob Badalucco in the youth boys’ 35-kg division.
