Our student Andrea Ishac will be competing in The World Taekwondo Cadet Championships will be held in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovnia, from August 28 to August 31, 2023.

Andrea Ishac is a 13-year-old, 3rd Dan Taekwondo athlete from Victoria Australia. Andrea has been training in Taekwondo since the age of six. Earlier this year Andrea won gold at the Victorian state championships and will also participate in the Australian National championships that will be held in October 2023 in Perth Australia.

On the 7th of July 2023, Andrea competed at the World Taekwondo Cadet Selection held in Morayfield Queensland, and was selected to be on the Australian National Team after she placed first in her nominated division. Andrea will now represent Australia at the World Taekwondo Cadet Championships and also compete at the Bosnian Open Tournament scheduled to follow the world championships in August. Unfortunately, here in Australia, Taekwondo is not funded and athletes and their family are responsible for covering all the associated costs.

It is estimated that the World Championships in Bosnia-Herzegovina will cost $12,000. Of this, $7000 will be athlete expenses and approximately $5000 for a guardian.

Any donation will be genuinely appreciated and give Andrea the opportunity to begin a new pathway of competing internationally:

We wish Andrea all the best.
