European Championship Team Ready to Perform in Belgrade

A talented blend of new and experienced athletes are travelling to Serbia this week to represent Great Britain in the European Championships, which take place in the Serbian capital of Belgrade from the 9th to the 12th May. The team are determined to perform at their best and build on the medal winning track record of the GB Team in the Championships.

In the European Championships team:

Bradly Sinden fights to retain his title as European Champion in -68kg, after winning the championships in 2022 when it was hosted in the Manchester Regional Arena.

Rebecca McGowan, who has been selected to represent GB in the +73kg category for the first time, is looking to add to the two European medals she has won in the -73kg category.

Serial European medallists Jade Jones and Lauren Williams look to add to their European Championship medal collections, having won 11 championship medals between them, whilst Aaliyah Powell and Caden Cunningham look to build on their European Games medals in 2023 by stepping on the European Championship podium for the first time.

The European Championships is an integrated Olympic & Paralympic event, following the competition format trailblazed by GB in 2022 when the event was hosted on home soil in Manchester. GB takes a strong Paralympic squad including current European Champions Beth Munro and Joseph Lane.

Gary Hall Performance Director of GB Taekwondo said “We have an excellent team for the European Championships that includes some of our well-established athletes that are looking to prove themselves ahead of selection for the Paris Games. The championships is also a great opportunity for some of the future generation of fighters to show what they are capable of achieving in this major championship event”.
