Leihona started Taekwondo when she was 9yrs old and has had many successes throughout the 4 years she’s been competing. She took Silver at the British Championships in her first year and quickly became British Champion. Leihona has been Scottish Champion twice and has recently been taken on by the Great Britain Wider Cadet Team. Leihona competes all over the UK and internationally and has won G1 medals in Romania and Latvia. Leihona has competed over the last few weeks in London and Derby taking Gold at both competitions. Leihona is training once a month at the Great Britain Academy in Manchester, and hoping to be selected to represent GB at the European or World Championships. Leihona’s mum told the RGF: “Your kind and generous grant will help fund some competitions and equipment. Taekwondo is self-funded, so any support is greatly appreciated as this sport is very expensive putting pressure on us to continue funding her ourselves. Thank you to the Rob George Foundation for their kind grant helping Leihona to pursue her Taekwondo journey.”
We all wish Leihona continued success.
