Taekwondo Canada – The 2017 Pan American Cadet and Junior Championships will be held from August 29th to the 31st in San Jose, Costa Rica. This G2 event is expecting to host the best Junior athletes in Pan American who are set to battle in the next 2018 Junior Olympic Games.

Taekwondo Canada is sending 23 Poomsae athletes, 44 Kyorugi athletes (7 wildcard athletes included) and 22 coaches to this event. The line-up consists of 2016 WTF World Junior Championships bronze medalist Zachary Hiebert, as well as Michelle Lee and Mark Bush, both bronze medalists in Individual Freestyle Poomsae divisions at the 2016 World Poomsae Championships.

Jamie Dossantos will lead the team at the Pan Am Taekwondo Championships in addition to her role as High Performance Department Staff for Taekwondo Canada. Joining Jamie’s team of officials will be Dr. Terry DeFreitas as team medical and Carmen Chan as the athletic therapist.

“We are really excited to announce the Team Canada squad for the Pan American Taekwondo Championships,” said Jamie, “Our team is young and dynamic. For many of them, this is the first time to represent Canada at an international stage. This will definitely be a great opportunity for them to develop their potentials and get motivated for the 2018 Junior World Olympic Games.”

Canadian athletes have been training intensively in preparation for this event. Zachary Hiebert, who is competing in the M -78kg weight division, has been training one to two sessions a day, 5 times a week, while doing conditioning on his day offs during this summer.

“I feel confident and prepared as well honoured to compete and represent Canada at the Pan Am Championships next week in Costa Rica,” said Zachary, “I hope to perform and represent my country and bring home the gold medal for Canada at this event.”
