( plain or seasoned ) Juniors aim high at world champs By AMY McGILLIVRAY Fighting for gold: Joshua Jamieson, 13, Matthew Chan, 17, and Ryan McNie, 13, are all competing in the junior division of the World Taekwondo Championships in Wellington next month. Photo: AMY McGILLIVRAY Next month will be full of firsts for three of the coun- try's most promising young black belts. Matthew Chan, 17, Ryan McNie and Joshua Jamieson, both 13, will be competing at their first World Taekwondo Championships which are being held in New Zealand for the first time from March 9to13. And the boys are hoping this will be the year the Kiwi team takes out the compe- tition -- also a first. The boys are all members of Impact Taekwon-Do. They received their black belts in December but are confident they can take on the world's best in Wellington. I'm wanting to do my best so I'm aiming for gold,'' Chan says. Coach and owner of the Mt Wellington club Mark Trotter is confident Chan can do just that. Matthew is probably the biggest hope for a gold from the juniors.'' Trotter says the Epsom resident's strength is in the special techniques category. I would be very surprised if he didn't win it.'' Chan will be competing in both individual and teams patterns and special tech- niques as well as team spar- ring. Jamieson and McNie should also do well but their age makes it a much tougher ask -- the boys will be up against 18-year-olds. It's a big difference. At 13 years old they are doing really well,'' Trotter says. Jamieson, of Glendowie, picked up the sport when he was eight. He will compete in individual sparring at the championships. McNie followed his mum into the sport almost five years ago and is in both the individual and teams pat- terns. The Pakuranga resident is hoping for gold at the tourna- ment but his ambitions go far beyond that. I want to get a grand mas- ter,'' he says. Impact Taekwon-Do also has five seniors who made the New Zealand team, including owners Trotter and Carolina Dillen. The Kiwis came second overall in the last world championships in 2009 and Dillen hopes the home advan- tage will see them walk away in first place.
