Taekwondo Opportunities

Congratulations to Eric Wright and Coach Johnny Birch, who competed at the first Inas World Taekwondo Championships in Ecuador this September and claimed the individual Gold medal for the USA Team.

 

Athletes Without Limits is looking for talented athletes with intellectual disability to represent the US at national and international taekwondo events.

September 2015 Inas Global Games Ecuador
Global Games 2015The Global Games draw the world’s top athletes with intellectual impairment competing in nine sports. Some events are qualifiers for the 2016 Rio Paralympics. This year’s Games take place in Quito, Ecuador and Taekwondo, a newly developing Inas sport, and is included as a demonstration event on September 24th.

The Cost of Creating Champions
Athletes Without Limits covers a portion of the event costs for Global Games, however, with so many US athletes attending (35 athletes and 15 staff in 5 sports) athletes and their families have considerable out-of-pocket costs to travel to the event.  They need your support today!

Inas/World Taekwondo Opportunities
As the US member of INAS, Athletes Without Limits offers opportunities for athletes to compete at the highest levels thanks to a recent collaboration between INAS and the World Taekwondo Federation.  Qualified athletes may be able to travel to international competitions with the US delegation. Please review eligibility guidelines and contact us if you know of any athletes who may be interested.
