Ireland`s first ever athlete to qualify for the Olympic Games in taekwondo is 21 year old Tallaght man Jack Woolley. He joined Anna Geary and Declan Pierce on Pumped Up Kicks fresh from the Late Late Show where he was one of the most popular guests of the night we think it is fair to say! An inspiring young man who sold eggs and gingerbread men in martial arts poses to help fund his dream!
“It’s all stepping stones to Tokyo, he says. If he gets the draw he wants, he’s looking at an Olympic medal, he says.
Mixing it at the top of the world, Jack is not being cocky.
Confident, Jack just being Jack.”
