Selection confirmed for Team GB Tae Kwondo.
Last weekend saw the final selection for possible inclusion in the National Tae Kwondo team. It was the culmination of a rigorous process which involved thousands of other candidates over the last few months. At the end of it, only 44 places were available... and Jacob was given one of them!
More amazing is that his main sport is karate - a discipline for which he has won many medals over the years. To be approached to trial for a sport in which he has had no training is incredible! He was spotted earlier in the year by a Tae Kwondo coach and clearly impressed Team GB throughout the range of tests he had to complete, both mental and physical.
Congratulations Jacob - we are really proud of you!
Fantastic news! Many congratulations. #inspiration #NCW2019 https://t.co/Ml1qzbMZFf 11:16 AM - 20 Feb 2019
The Colosseum could hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators, having an average audience of some 65,000; it was used for gladiatorial contests and public spectacles such as mock sea battles for a short time as the hypogeum was filled in with mechanisms for other activities. https://t.co/9fADBTYgVs 10:09 AM - 20 Feb 2019
Ancient Romans traveled by land and sea. From earliest times the Romans displayed remarkable skill at building and engineering. They constructed bridges across the river Tiber, aqueducts to supply Rome with water, and sewers to drain the forum and keep the city healthy. https://t.co/vdrFUiSZdf 10:05 AM - 20 Feb 2019
