UPSA student wins gold at World Taekwondo Championship in Korea

A third-year student of the University of Professional Studies, Accra, Henrietta Armah, has won gold for Ghana at the just ended 2019 Korean Ambassador's Cup Taekwondo World Championships held in Muju, Republic of Korea.

Henrietta, who is pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Accounting programme at the University, is also a member of the National Senior Taekwondo team.

The unassuming fighter, although could not make it to the medal zone at the last All African Games 2019 in Rabat, Morocco, this time put up a spirited performance throughout the competition to grab the gold medal.

The Championship is organized by the Republic of Korea through its Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Culture & Tourism and it is aimed at promoting the Korean culture among Taekwondo practising nations across the globe.

These Taekwondo countries organise their local championship under the auspices of the Korean Embassy in their jurisdictions. The champions from these local championships are then selected for the World Championship in Korea each year.

Henrietta is currently the National Champion (in the female - 49 weight division) and also Assistant Instructor of the UPSA Taekwondo Club.
