Twenty-one Peace Country athletes are taking off to the Netherlands this weekend to compete in the International Taekwon-Do Federation Open Worlds. Competitors from Tien Lung Taekwon-Do in the Grande Prairie area including Sheldon Wiens have been preparing for the event in Barneveld.
“For most of us, we have been cutting weight to get into the category that we are in. For me, I will be pushing and will still train. As soon as I get there, there won’t be any breaks until after the tournament, especially for me. I will continue to have a good mindset and things like that.”
The group will take off on Saturday with the event running from September 25th to October 1st.
