About Mason

Hailing from Doncaster, Yarrow set his sights on Taekwondo following a family friend’s suggestion and hasn’t looked back since.

The youngster’s previous achievements include a bronze medal win at the Cadet World Championships in 2015 and gold at the 2018 Luxembourg Open.

He was also selected to represent Team GB at the 2018 Youth Olympic Games and despite missing out in the early stages of the event will cherish the lessons learnt.

More recently, the teenager made his mark on the world stage by reaching the Quarter Final on home soil.


60 SECOND INTERVIEW

WHEN DID YOU START TAEKWONDO AND WHY:
I started when I was nine, I was on the trampoline with my brother and one of my Dad’s friends (who had done Taekwondo when he was younger) mentioned that it would be good for me to try the sport as a hobby.

OTHER SPORTS PLAYED:
I played a lot of football when I was younger, I also enjoyed participating in Athletics. I enjoyed all sports really, I got involved in everything.

AMBITION:
To become Olympic Champion.

ROLE MODEL/FAVOURITE OTHER SPORTSMAN OR WOMAN:
I’d say Bradly Sinden because I know we’re good friends but he’s always been driven and has worked hard to get to where he has. He’s proven himself, he’s World Champion.

WHY SHOULD THE PUBLIC WATCH TAEKWONDO:
It’s unpredictable, anything can happen at any time. One kick can change an entire fight and someone could be knocked out.

IF SOMEONE GAVE YOU £1 MILLION, WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH IT:
I would probably buy a fast car and a house.

SOMETHING YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT MASON YARROW:
My Dad and I have the same birthday.
