Peak Performance of Waterloo captures 10 medals at AAU Nationals

Posted:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

After much deserved time off the Peak Performance Taekwondo team is once again attacking their passion.

At the prestigious AAU National Championships in Austin, Peak Performance captured ten medals, including three golds in black belt competition.

Leading the way for Peak Performance was the old lady of the group 24-year-old Kim Taylor.

Taylor's story is quite remarkable. After winning national titles during her teenage years, Kim took five years off from the sport. She returned with a vengeance; dominating her weight class and qualifying for the national team trials.

Also bringing home gold as Black belt competitors was 12-year-old Morgan McGarvey who has frightening speed and power for her age and Carly Pint.
