2016 Kyorugi National Team
Josipa Kafadar


I started taekwondo at the age of 4, as a present for my birthday from my parents. From the start I loved every aspect of the sport. A year later, I started to compete in sparring. Having enjoyed that experience, I wanted to continue and do well. As of then, I set a goal to one day represent my country at big events such as: world championships and Olympic Games. In 2015, I attended my first international competition (2015 Canadian Open). After having won gold there, I knew I could do whatever I put my mind to. A year later, I qualified for the 2016 Junior World Championships that where held in my hometown. Having the luxury of my family, teammates and friends there cheering me on was what made the experience even more precious. Although I was upset with just missing the podium, I was glad that I had the supporting environment to get to the round of 8.

Outside of my taekowndo life, I have achieved high academic standings in the french immersion program throughout secondary school and I enjoy reading, listening/making music, and other sports (basketball, track & field).
