From July 7th to 9th, several Fenua Taekwondo artists had a meeting in Morayfield, Australia. The event featured two tournaments: the President’s Cup Oceania and the Australian Open.

About 1,600 athletes and officials from 50 countries participated. The goal for many: earn points before the 2024 Olympics.

It was also an opportunity for athletes from Oceania to prepare for the Pacific Games in Solomon Islands in November.

The Tahitian delegation is far from returning empty-handed. Comprising 20 athletes, it won 8 gold medals, 5 silver and 7 bronze medals.

During the Presidents Cup Oceania, Manu Huatua (+ 87 kg) of Debana DKD Club won the bronze medal in the senior category. He defeated his Australian opponent before losing to the Chinese athlete.

In the 62kg category, Tahitian Martial Spirit’s Kawehi Iorse also won the bronze medal.

Taiarapu TKD Club’s Ruguroa Bernardino and Kahaya Benacek both scored twice in two internationals as they won gold.

The Tahitians’ next trip is scheduled for next month during the Cadet World Championships in Sarajevo, Serbia.
