60 SECOND INTERVIEW

WHEN DID YOU START TAEKWONDO AND WHY:
I started doing Taekwondo when I was six because my friend did it at my school and I thought, “Why not?”

OTHER SPORTS PLAYED:
In school, I played Rugby and outside of school, Boxing.

AMBITION:
Olympic gold at Paris 2024 and World Championships gold.

WHY SHOULD THE PUBLIC WATCH TAEKWONDO IN YOUR OPINION?
There are very unexpected elements and with Taekwondo, the game can switch up…it’s like a soap opera/drama.

IF SOMEONE GAVE YOU £1 MILLION, WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH IT:
I’d buy a monkey, to be honest and then I’d buy a whole area in Manchester and get all of the athletes to live there.

SOMETHING YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT CADEN CUNNINGHAM:
I really love monkeys.
