Amy Truesdale Aims To Bounce Back In Russia

Amy Truesdale Para Worlds

Britain’s leading para-taekwondo star, Amy Truesdale is in high hopes following her disappointment at not retaining her title but achieving bronze at the 6th World Para Taekwondo Championships.

The Chester-based fighter is in a “good place” after reaching the semi-final stages of the competition and is aiming to face her Azerbaijani rival, Aynur Mammadova at tomorrow’s International Wheelchair & Amputee Sport (IWAS) games in Sochi, Russia.

“I’m feeling confident and looking forward to competing. If I make it to the finals, I’ll be fighting Azerbaijan who I lost to at the World Championships.”

There’s no doubt that it’s been quite an eventful year for the 25-year-old, who has her sights set on earning more valuable ranking points in a bid to compete at Tokyo 2020.

“I won my first set of ranking points in April from winning the Europeans and the points I earned from my bronze at the worlds also count, so I’m focusing on building them up for the next four years.”
