The Pre­ci­sion taek­wondo in Spa­niard’s Bay con­tin­ues to have im­pres­sive re­sults at com­pe­ti­tions around the coun­try.

The club’s lat­est eye-catch­ing per­for­mance oc­curred in Ge­orge­town, Ont., at the 21th an­nual Bat­tle of the War­riors tour­na­ment. An in­ter­na­tion­al­class event, the tour­na­ment fea­tured com­peti­tors from all over the world pit­ting their skills against each other at the Gor­don Al­cott Arena on May 8.

Pre­ci­sion sent 12 ath­letes to the event and brought home a bas­ket­ful of medals. In to­tal, they gar­nered 13 medals — one gold, seven sil­ver and five bronze.

The strong show­ing at the On­tario event was pre­ceded by an­other re­mark­able per­for­mance in St. John’s.

At the Chong Lee Cup, the Pre­ci­sion com­pe­ti­tion team brought home a whop­ping 29 medals. That in­cluded 13 gold, seven sil­ver and nine bronze.

“As a coach I am and so proud of each and ev­ery stu­dent who com­peted at both the tour­na­ments. A lot of hard work and ded­i­ca­tion went into train­ing for th­ese events and it has paid off. I look for­ward to see­ing what th­ese kids will do in the fu­ture,” said coach Scott Bartlett.
