The Head of State opened the World Junior Taekwondo Championships in Sofia
For centuries, martial arts have been developing perfection of physique and character, educating discipline and responsibility, respect not only for the partner but also for the opponent. This was stated by President Rumen Radev, who today opened the World Junior Taekwondo Championships at Arena Armeec in Sofia. The event is held under the patronage of the Head of State. 
The President congratulated the organisers of this significant sporting event, highlighting the dedication of the parents and coaches who motivate the young athletes. You are giving them a chance to develop and establish themselves as strong and confident individuals not only in sport, but also in life, the Head of State said and wished the athletes to set an example in promoting the principles of fair play and values in sport. 
This year Bulgaria is hosting two World Taekwondo Championships, with Sofia hosting the World Cadet Championships and the World Junior Championships from 28 July to 7 August. The opening ceremony was attended by World Taekwondo Federation President Dr Chungwon Choue, world-famous Bulgarian football player Hristo Stoichkov and Bulgarian Taekwondo Federation President Slavi Binev.
