( plain or seasoned ) Trio take on world's best 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 Taekwondo World Championships in Wellington next month. Photo: AMY McGILLIVRAY Next month will be full of firsts for three of the country's most promising young black belts. Matthew Chan, 17, Ryan McNie and Joshua Jamieson, both 13, will compete at their first World Taekwondo Championships being held in New Zealand for the first time from March 9 to 13. And the boys are hoping this will be the year the Kiwi team takes out the competition -- also a first. The boys are all members of Impact Taekwon-Do. They received their black belts only in December last year but are confident they can take on the world's best at the Wel- lington tournament. 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 confi- dent 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 sur- prised if he didn't win it.'' Chan will be compet- ing in both individual and teams patterns and special techniques as well as team sparring. Jamieson and McNie should also do well but their age makes it a much tougher ask as the boys will be up against 18-year-olds. It's a big difference. At 13 they are doing really well,'' Trotter says. Jamieson, of Glendowie, picked up the sport when he was eight. He will compete in indi- vidual sparring at the championships. McNie followed his mum into the sport almost five years ago and is in both the individual and teams patterns. The Pakuranga resi- dent is hoping for gold at the tournament but his ambitions go far beyond that. I'm wanting to get a grand master,'' he says. Impact Taekwon-Do also has five seniors who made the New Zealand team, including owners Trotter and Carolina Dil- len. The Kiwis came sec- ond overall in the last world championships in 2009 and Dillen hopes the home advantage will see them walk away in first place.
