Two-time world champion and Olympic medallist Sarah Stevenson got into taekwondo after accompanying her older brother to his taekwondo club at the age of seven, where she fell in love with the sport. “What I loved about it was just being part of something different and special. What was everyone else doing after school? I was in a club and I had a different team, my own family. It is like a family. It’s your own little thing.”

Sarah started competing all over the world, including the World Championships, European Championships and the Olympic games in Sydney, Athens, Beijing and London. Sarah has now formally retired from competing and has taken on a role on the GB Coaching team. “I am delighted

I have been accepted onto the coaching team so I can help put that into the athletes we have now and the next generation.

What Sarah says about Us Girls

Quote: "I'm so happy to be involved with US Girls. It's an amazing project to get girls involved in sport especially those from deprived areas. I believe that together we can help girls with not only health and fitness but with self-esteem, confidence and a wide range of issues. By using strong, confident women like myself, we can help to change our girls lives for the better, with the use of sport, health and fitness."
