With 18 Golds, 16 Silvers and 8 Bronze Medals in total, our taekwondo athletes dominated the competition. This spectacular medal tally meant that we secured enough points to be crowned the overall Gold Medalists for the sport.
Worth a special mention are the three athletes from Monash who were selected to be members of the Green and Gold team for the whole competition; Madeleine Henry, Karmen Lam and Michael Luu.
Michael Luu gathered a medal in every event, with 2 Golds, a Silver and a Bronze. Similarly impressive was Danae Smith who won the Gold Medal in each of her three events.
