Karine Sergerie obtained her ticket for the 2012 London Games, her second Olympics, by winning 2012 Canadian Olympic Team Trials in division 3 earlier on this year.
“I hope to continue improving over the course of the months leading up to the next Olympic Games”, says Sergerie.
In her first showing at the Olympic Games in Beijing in 2008, Sergerie brought home the silver, Canada’s best result ever in Taekwondo’s Olympic history.
In 2011, at the World Taekwondo Championships in Gyeongju, in South Korea, Sergerie won bronze in the Light division. In 2010, she won gold in many other competitions, such as the Canada Open, the Dutch Open, the German Open and the International Paris Open.
In 2007, she became the first Canadian athlete to win the World Taekwondo Championships. She claimed her title in the -63kg division. Her first gold medal at Worlds coincides with her gold medal win at Pan Am Games in 2007, in Rio de Janeiro.
Sergerie is a 2003 World Championships silver medallist, which were held in Garmisch, and 2005 World Championships bronze medallist, which took place in Madrid.
