More than 100 fights were held in one day as part of the annual Blue Mountains Taekwondo Championships, held at the Lithgow Civic Ballroom on June 16.
Lithgow's contingent from Haktari Taekwondo had a very successful day out, taking home a collection of gold and silver medals.
Charles Baker claimed two gold medals, Ben Maloney two silver, Alexis Reid took one gold and one silver, Jorja Pender won gold, Ebony Pender claimed one gold and one silver, Hunter Pender also went home with gold and one silver. Riley Denley finished with a silver and a third place, Harry Luka won silver, Dustin Beckett took gold, Toby Zorz won gold and Micheal Carew-Ferguson won a silver.
This year marked the 28th year of the Blue Mountains Taekwondo Championships.
Haktari Taewondo Academy, which is headed by Jeff Crane, took to social media to thank everyone who was involved in the day, including the many referees and corner judges from all the clubs that attended on the day, some from as far away as the ACT.
"I am very proud of my small club that always put on a great event for taekwondo practitioners of all ages and levels, working tirelessly over the weekend in the setup, running the event and then the packing up and cleaning the whole venue," the post said.
"Our little team did a mighty job."
