About Christian

Christian began competing in Taekwondo at the age of 16, after having completed a successful career in kickboxing, where he had previously both WAKO junior European and World Championship titles.

In the hopes of becoming Olympic Champion, Christian went on to earn a bronze medal at the Youth Olympic Games in 2014 before winning impressive golds at not only the Commonwealth Championships but the Turkish Open too.

Proving he is no stranger when it comes to multi-sport environments, McNeish headed to Korea in 2015 to compete at the University Games, where he reached the semi-final stages and added another bronze to his medal tally.

Since then, Christian was selected to represent Great Britain at the World Championships in 2017 and medalled at the World Taekwondo Grand Prix Moscow in the very same year.
