The hopes for the Olympic Games 2012
The national school of Taekwondo WTF began its ascention six years ago, when Vladislav Mazur, who successfully combines the activity in the National federation of specialty with the work of a trainer, came to head the profile federation. At present the profile sections work in Razeni and Zimbreni, Ialoveni region, at Bubuieci and Vadul lui Voda, Balabaneshti and Tiraspol. Altogether the discipline is practiced by more than a thousand young people in towns and villages.
The leaders of the national team of Moldova are Ion Vizitiu, who received bronze at the European Championship in 2005, Angela Melnic and Oleg Papanaga, who took part for the first time in a qualification tour for the Olympic Games in Beijing that took place in Istanbul. One of the disciples of Vladislav Mazur, Vladislav Arventii proved himself at the latest World Championship, where he won bronze medal among juniors. This talented sportsman, along with the three nominees, has good chances to receive the permission to go to the Olympic Games to London in 2012.
