Engage Communities provided young people from the Round House project the opportunity to watch the World Taekwondo Grand Prix (GP) held at Manchester Central on 15th December 2013. The young people from Round House were inspired by the world’s top athletes coming together to battle it out for vital qualification points ahead of Rio 2016. This included watching GB athlete Lutalo Muhammad winning the -80kg category with Taekwondo superstar Aaron Cook taking the bronze. The competition is the first of 4 global Grand Prix, with a Grand Prix final to be held at the end of 2014. Our young people also got the opportunity to meet and get photos taken with Sarah Stevenson GB Taekwondo Olympic medallist, World and European champion and Milica Mandić the reigning Olympic champion in the +67 kg category.
