Milton honors world Taekwondo champion.


At its Aug. 8 meeting, the Milton City Council honored Councilman Matt Kunz in honoring 14-year-old Cameron Comrie, who recently took the top spot in traditional forms at the American Taekwondo Association World Championships. She is pictured with her parents and the Milton City Council.

Comrie, who began her martial arts career in 2005 at the Milton’s own Karate Atlanta, is now a third degree black belt. She has also gained state titles in forms, sparring and weapons.

Comrie came into the World Championships ranked first in the world among traditional forms for 12- to 14-year olds with 2nd and 3rd degree black belts – one of the most competitive divisions. She took the title after a flawless routine that showcased her mastery of the Songahm 82-move form.
