This morning, Weymouth’s Anaya Pringle and her family visited the State House to be recognized during session for her accomplishments in Taekwondo. Anaya has been involved in Taekwondo since she was 5 years old and has since become an incredibly accomplished athlete. At 12, Anaya was ranked number one in the nation after winning gold at the 2019 AAU competition in number one in Olympic Sparring. Today at 15, she is a second-degree black belt with 77 gold medals, 24 silvers, 10 bronzes, and 6 first-place trophies.
Outside of her accomplishments in martial arts, Anaya is a standout student at Weymouth High, being a member of various extracurricular groups and having taken multiple honors courses. She is a part of the Human Rights Coalition, and was recently accepted into the career & technical education carpentry program and has been invited to be a part of Model UN.
Anaya’s goals are to compete at the Olympics in Taekwondo. There’s no doubt that Anaya’s will continue to do great things, and I look forward to seeing what she will continue to accomplish well into the future.
