Mahama Cho

A longstanding member of the GB Taekwondo team, Mahama is best known for his trademark punch.

His Taekwondo legacy began when he was chosen as a wild card option at the inaugural Manchester Grand Prix in 2013, which he went onto win in the heavyweight category. This win meant that Mahama had qualified to compete at the remaining events in the series.

Since then, the fighter has built up his medal tally by competing at the Swiss, Paris and Luxor Opens – to name but a few.

In 2014, Mahama once again fought in the Grand Prix series and despite losing in the Manchester leg, won silver and bronze abroad.

Mahama also qualified to compete at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games by winning the European Qualification Tournament in January of that year. He missed out on medalling at the Games but respectively finished 4th.

In 2017, Mahama gained his first major medal in the form of a silver at the World Championships in Muju, which was swiftly followed by a gold medal win at the World Taekwondo Grand Prix Rabat.
