Nov. 18, 2019, 12 p.m. (ET)

Nov 18, 2019 - The fourth USA Taekwondo Talent ID camp took place in Grapevine, Texas this past weekend and was a great success. USA Taekwondo Technical Director Paul Green joined by coaches, George Sloan, Sang Cha, Russ Gale, Lynda Laurin, and Andreea Kovacs-Lester were all very pleased with the turnout of the camp and pleased with the amount of athletes that came and showcased their talent. Within the camp 36 athletes emerged and showed they were ready for the next level and will be moving on to Phase II, which will be taking place this weekend Nov 22-24 in Las Vegas, Nevada. 

 

With 2019 soon coming to an end, USA Taekwondo this year have successfully opened the National Center of Excellence, put together a series of Grand Slam events that were all very successful, launched the resident athlete academy program, opened up the first Paul Green Master class, ran three successful Talent I.D. Camps, and released the new selection pathways for the cadet, junior and senior athletes. 2019 proved to be an astonishing year, and 2020 will bring in even more exciting opportunities. The Talent I.D. camps will continue to play an increasingly major role in our goal to find and create depth in our pool of talent from within Taekwondo and beyond, and 2019 still has Phase II in store for us, which will allow us to move on to our next phase of the Talent I.D. program. 

 

We are pleased to announce the Phase II athletes from the Texas Talent I.D. Camp, see below to view the athletes that moved on to Phase II.
