Good Effort by University Combined Team

The University taekwondo team representing Singapore at the 16th Asean University Games returned from Vientiane, Laos where the event was held from 12 to 19 December 2012 with 4 bronze medals.  It was a creditable performance considering the players’ study commitment.

Said Mr Yum Shoen Keng, the Team Manager and also the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) Senior Assistant Director (Sports): “With the team preparation affected by the University examinations, it would be difficult for the team to perform better than what they achieved.”

The team members, who were students of the various Universities in Singapore, came together to train for the competition under coach Tan Kheng Juan only a couple weeks before they boarded the plane for Vientiane.  Despite that, they gave their best effort to give their opponents a run for their money.

The STF supported the event with 2 international referees.  They are Mr Tan Kok Heng and Mr Michael Ho.

The following are the players from Singapore.

  • Chua Juan Juan (NTU)
  • Rachel Koh (NTU)
  • Tan Shi Ying (NTU)
  • Samuel Lee (NTU)
  • Mohd Altaff Khibran (NUS)
  • Dennis Saw (NUS)
  • Sherman Wee (NUS)
