We took five athletes to the Puerto Rico G2 Open on April 3-4 and came back with three medals! We are super proud of their performance at such a high-level tournament.
Congratulations to the following athletes for such a great performance:
Samantha Cruz: GOLD
Michael Cruz: GOLD
Katelyn Cruz: Bronze (lost to gold medalist who is also PR team A member)
Wilfredo Ortiz (Lost to Team A, 13x PR national team member)
Sidney Bennie (Lost to #3 ranked USA athlete)
Both Willie’s and Sidney’s fights were close and could’ve gone either way. Both did extremely well and have learned a lot from the experience.
Thank you, Master Landrau Elvin, the Puerto Rico Taekwondo Federation, and all the international referees for putting together such a great event. We can’t wait until next year!
Also really want to give a special heartfelt thank you to Master Landrau and Master Pena for always being there and providing support and technical advice when needed. You guys are the best!
