SOFIA, Bulgaria (18 Oct. 2019) – The world’s highest flying taekwondo practitioners – the WT Demonstration Team – bought their unique brand of excitement to Bulgaria, generating buzz in advance of the World Taekwondo Grand Prix in the capital, Sofia.
Hundreds of Bulgarians watched two stadia performances, entitled “Red Roses of the Balkans” at the Sport Hall Mladost in the city of Burgas on Oct. 15, and in the Strudjenie Pluven Sporten Klub Cherno More in the city of Varna on Oct. 16. Some 16 team members showcased kicks, flips, poomsae, self-defense and of course their famous high-speed, high-altitude aerial board breaks in the two 40-minute performances.
The team will also perform at the Grand Prix’s opening ceremony this evening.
The elite-level tournament is in Bulgaria for the first time ever. Next year, the Balkan country will host the Junior World Championships.
