Early this month, Jocelyn Planger and Abigail Abela hit the road to Regina to compete in Canadian Taekwon-do Federation International Nationals, and both were able to walk away with great results. Planger is is a 2nd degree Black Belt while Abela is a Red Belt (black stripe) and both were amongst a field of over 200 competitors at Nationals.
Abela competed in two events — sparring and patterns. A gold medal came her way in the sparring competition and she finished tied for fifth in patterns.
Planger was a force to be reckoned with as she claimed gold medals in specialty breaking, power breaking, and sparring, and a silver medal in patterns. Planger was also tied for first for top female competitor at Nationals.
