My name is Daniel Marinac, I am elite Taekwondo athlete who has represented Australia at numerous International events around the world. I have been selected to compete in the 2013 Taekwondo Grand Prix, held in Manchester in the U.K.– The first of its kind to be held. In order to gain an invitation to this event the athlete must be ranked in the top 35 competitors in the World within their respective Olympic Division.The WTF World Grand Prix event will play a large part in selection for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. This is an invitation only event and unfortunately a self-funded event.
Taekwondo is a self funded sport in Australia and every athlete has to pay their own way if they want to achieve their dreams. Any donations would be amazing and much appreciated and would be used for flights, accommodation, training fees, entry fees, all costs associated with competition.
