 “[…] The European Cadet Championships are very important for us. Such events will give birth to our next Champions and Olympic medalists, since they supply our young athletes with experiences in major taekwondo championships and help them adapt in the sport procedures, the sport environment, and overpass the stress of a competition.

The European Cadet Taekwondo Championships are in fact the ETU event that opens a new Olympic cycle. Let it launch in the best way possible and promise us a series of successful, high quality and elevated Taekwondo events. […]” stated Mr. Sakis Pragalos.
