Taekwondo Team First USA Athletes to Visit Chelyabinsk Russia:
The USA Taekwondo team arrived in Chelyabinsk, Russia on April 23,2010. Head Coach of the 2000 USA Olympic Team, Grand Master Young In Cheon, and junior athletes from the United States were invited by the Chelyabinsk Taekwondo Federation to compete at the 7th International Taekwondo WTF Olympic Hopes Championship on April 26-30 2010. Upon arrival, the team was greeted by former Olympian and Russia Olympic Committee member Sergey Pak. Pak was very excited to inform Team USA and VIP Young In Cheon that this was the first time athletes from the United States were visiting the Chelyabinsk area to compete in a sports event. This is truly a historical event and Chelyabinsk Taekwondo Federation President Kiselyov Anatoliy expressed his gratitude to Team USA for participating in this event.
Grand Master Cheon and Team USA are very proud and fortunate to be spearheading the building of a firm relationship with Russia. With Taekwondo being the foundation, it will be a relationship that is built to last. Team USA consists of 8 members: VIP member Young In Cheon, team coach Master Nathan Doggett (Royal Martial Arts, Michigan), team manager Veronica Braun, and athletes from California, Mark Kang, Samantha Braun, Nathaniel Ahlstrom, Madison, and Nicole Motoyasu.
The athletes gave a great competition and in the end Samantha Braun won silver 2nd place and Madison Motoyasu won gold 1st place for Team USA.
Special thanks to California Unified Taekwondo Association and Kwon USA for their support.
