G2 Chuncheon Open – Taekwondo

Great matches from the G2 Chuncheon Open in Chuncheon, South Korea. Many of the Koreans (many that aren’t even on the Korean National Team) and Chinese have been upsetting many of the big name foreign fighters from Europe, the Pacific, Asia, and North & South America. Many of the US fighters were able to advance past their first fights.

Mauricio Newman Jr (Chang Lee’s TKD/Peak Dallas) was able to advance to the Round of 16 before falling to an athlete from Dong Ah University. Cynthia Villareal defeated Kazhakstan in overtime before losing to Chanatip Sonkham of Thailand in the Round of 32. Jacob Grace (-68 kg US National Champ) was point gapped by Korea. Abbey Ardiana (Collegiate Nationals Runner-Up) lost 11 to 3 to Korea. TJ Curry (-74 kg US Team Member) lost to Azerbaijan in overtime. Khalil Butler (Yi Sport TKD) lost to Korea 7 to 3.
