The Malta Taekwondo Federation participated in this year’s edition of the British Masters 2013 edition.  This event was held at the Brentford Fountain Leisure Centre, Brentford, London between the 9th and 10th November.


For this edition the contingent, led by national coach Mr Brian Saliba, included a total of fourteen athletes;  Kimberly Meli, Marco Cassara’, Lynsey Fenech (gold);  Jaden Cauchi, Kylie Magro, Mauro Busuttil (silver); Jody Bruno, Julie Ann Camilleri, Joel Genuis, Kyle Saliba Gracey, Gianluca Barbara (bronze);  Kyle Vassallo, Jerome Vassallo and Shania Magro.


This edition also provided another opportunity for Mr Joseph Azzopardi as he was accepted to act as an official referee during this prestigious event.  Mr Azzopardi gained his International Referee Licence inAustriaearlier this year.


At the end of the tournament the team metLondonOlympic gold medalist Ms Sarah Stevenson.  The latter congratulated the athletes for their achievements and informed the President of the Federation about her interest to visit Malta and conduct a training camp.


Overall this was a successful achievement especially bearing in mind that for many athletes this was their first international experience and surely augures a future filled with opportunities.
