Taekwondo Medal for Woolley

September 7, 2015

Ireland’s Jack Woolley won a Silver medal in the Israel Taekwondo Open G1 competition to add to his 3rd place Bronze medal achieved in Poland last week.

Jack Woolley was unlucky not to take a gold medal as the final match went to a draw and a subsequent golden point round where he narrowly missed out to his Israeli opponent.

Jack has picked up a valuable 7.2 points which will contribute to a more favourable draw in the European Olympic qualifying tournament in Turkey in January.

With 4 podium finishes in his first year as senior Woolley will head to Russia at the end of the month and then Riga where he will play for the final time in the European Junior Championships.
