Velocity Taekwondo hauled in over three dozen medals this past weekend at the Prairie Wildfire Taekwondo Challenge in Yorkton.

The Swift Current-based club had 22 participants trek to east-central Saskatchewan and brought home 14 gold, 10 silver, and 13 bronze.

Jesse Hir, an instructor with Velocity Taekwondo, said the club won the second most medals of the 16 teams that participated.

"It was a lot of fun," he said. "Lots of learning happened and brought home some hardware so everybody was happy."

The event had 234 competitors from Manitoba, Alberta, and Saskatchewan, with Velocity Taekwondo's Brooklyn Hir being awarded tournament MVP and a katana sword.

Brooklyn dislocated her arm in February and attended the competition to coach and compete in poomsae. She stepped up when two competitors didn't have opponents.

"If she didn't compete, that division wouldn't have happened," he said. "The one girl was 20 kilograms heavier than Brooklyn and the other girl was the same size as Brooklyn. Those two didn't want to fight each other and the only reason the division was able to happen was Brooklyn stepped in." 

She beat both the competitors in sparring to win gold.
