My dad remains my inspiration - Mahama Cho, GB Taekwondo

Published on: 1st June, 2021

Mahama Cho has been named as part of the GB Taekwondo squad for the Tokyo Olympics. This will be his second Olympic Games after a 5th place in Rio.

I caught up with him whilst he was trying out the Team GB formal suit supplied by Simon Jersey. He talks about looking the part for the Games.

He was massively inspired by his dad who encouraged him to work hard and never give up. He looks up to what his dad did in the sport and remains Mahama Cho's inspiration throughout his 14 years on the squad.

I'm making these podcasts to tell the stories of Olympians and Paralympians but also to raise some money for Maggie's Cancer Centres.

If you're enjoying them maybe you'd drop me the price of a coffee to help the cause?

I’m also using it to raise money for Maggie’s Cancer Centres to thank them for the help they’ve given my wife and family during her bowel cancer journey.
