Luke Takes Gold and Sets His Heart On Bigger Things

Hales student Luke Mannering-Green recently entered the Black Belt Taekwondo LTSI English South East Open in Hatfield and was delighted when he won the gold medal, winning all three of his fights and earning the title of ‘English Champion’ for his division.

The 15-year-old student competed in the 15-17 year age group and received his black belt last summer. He has, in fact, been training for the last 7 years at TSA Taekwondo based on the Eurolink in Sittingbourne. Luke trains 3 to 4 days a week and visits the gym 6 days a week. This hardworking lad wants to progress to training 3 nights a week in London as he has his eyes set on Team GB in two years' time. When asked if he was ever scared of getting hurt, Luke said, "No, but my Mum does. She closes her eyes at times!" A spokesperson from Fulston said that staff wished Luke every ounce of luck, and they are interested in watching his taekwondo career.
