The 16-year-old from Whitford, fighting for the New Zealand national team, won the under 73kg Juniors section at the WTF President’s Cup – Oceania Region in Canberra on July 24. It was the biggest win of Jordan’s career so far and was a junior G-2 world ranking event. “It was pretty massive for me,” the quiet and seemingly shy year 12 student said of his Australian triumph. Starting at 9am on the Saturday, he won three fights in a row to make it to the final, which started at 1.30am the following morning. The Times caught up with Jordan and his coach last week at a taekwondo gym in Mount Wellington, where the young athlete – his body still sore from the weekend – was slowly getting back into training. His coach, Master Dafydd Sanders, was happy to talk through the drama of Jordan’s gold medal fight. He was eight points down going into the last round. “It’s after 1am in the morning, the guy has obviously worked hard to get an eight point lead,” Sanders said. “But there’s one more round left and we’ve come all the way to here; we are going to work and work and work until the final second.” Jordan fought his way back by never getting too far ahead of himself, Sanders said. “He just focused on what he needed to do each step of the way. “[The fact] he was down on points – he wasn’t worried about it, he was just worried about the things we’ve been training and what he needed to do in that moment. So he just took every step and did it the best he could.” One of the key moments in the final round was when Jordan executed a “scorpion kick” on his opponent. “ The kick goes up the back and scores off the back of the head,” Sanders explained. Jordan went on to take the lead and win. He said it first occurred to him that he could go the whole way at about 12am in the morning, after the third fight. “Everyone was like, ‘Ok Jordan, you have to get gold. There’s no point in waiting here all day not to try and go for gold.’” His main goal is winning gold at the World Taekwondo Junior Championships in Burnaby, British Columbia in November. Sanders said he believes Jordan could be the first Kiwi to win gold at the event. “A year ago, no one really rated him. But now, since he won the President’s Cup, he’s got a lot more people looking at him. “I think he’s looking good. I think the prospect of New Zealand winning its first medal is good with Jordan.” But for the athlete himself, it’s still one step at a time. He will continue to train after school five or six times a week and focus on the small things. “ This will be my last chance for Juniors,” Jordan said with a quiet determination. Meanwhile, Pakuranga’s Harry Glover also returned from Canberra with a medal. The 14-year-old, also fighting for the New Zealand national team, won silver in the under 57kg Cadets section. Harry has qualified for the Oceania Championships in Suva, Fiji in November, as has Jordan and two other local fighters – Martyn Glover (Cadets under 37kg) and Cullen Te Young (Juniors under 63kg). taekwondo Jordan’s golden kick Jordan Nathan-Welch Times photo Wayne Martin golf Fox claims second challenge tour title Ryan Fox carded an incredible nine-under 62 to surge to victory in the European Challenge Tour’s Northern Ireland Open on Monday (NZT). Starting the day three shots off the lead, the 29-year- old Beachlands player quickly changed that with a birdie and an eagle in his opening two holes to wipe the deficit. Fox went on to complete a four shot victory and claim his second European Challenge Tour title. Taking home $50,000 for his efforts, Fox was threatening the magic number of 59, yet two bogeys sadly buried that chance. It was still an amazing round of golf in the final round that included an eagle and nine birdies. “It got hot and it was nice to keep seeing the ball go in. I thought I was flirting with the magical number for a while, but a three-putt on 16 didn’t help that,” said Fox. “ To be honest, I played exactly how I played all week, but I got really hot with the putter. I played solid from tee to green the whole week, and today I left myself a lot of makeable putts.” This victory comes as perfect timing in the build up to golf ’s return to the Olympics. A week out from the men’s golf teeing off, this will give Fox the utmost confidence leading into the historical occasion. “I couldn’t have played any better and it’s nice to go into the Olympics with some form,” he said. “It’s always a good feeling to win.” “It’s hard to get your first win and sometimes it seems harder to keep doing it. It’s great to be a two-time winner on the Challenge Tour and build on the experience I had last year. “It’ll be great in Rio, I’m looking forward to being part of the New Zealand team; we don’t get the opportunity very often in golf.” With all the excitement around Rio, we must not forget the backbone of his career which is aiming to get his European Tour card. This big win boosts him right up the Challenge Tour order of merit rankings and he now sits in a comfortable second place as he gets ever so close to securing his full status on the European Tour. Fox will now be in full Olympic mode as he packs his bags to leave for Rio at the end of the week and will become the third member of the Fox family to represent New Zealand.
