Participation in International Competitions

Singapore will be represented in two international competitions.  They are the 6th World Taekwondo Poomsae Championships which will be staged from 29 to 31 July 2011 in Vladivostok, Russia and the World Hanmadang 2011 which will be held from 10 to 13 August 2011 in Namyangju City, Korea.

The following will carry Singapore flag.

World Taekwondo Poomsae

  • Ng Lee Noi (Team Manager)
  • Tan Cheng Hui (Coach)
  • Sister Linda Sim (Athlete)
  • Joyce Lim Soon Yi (Athlete)
  • Sherman Wee Li Sheng (Athlete)

Wong Liang Ming will also be at the championships.  She will be participating in the ‘exhibition’ event for all NSA Presidents and Secretary-Generals.  It is to support the WTF initiative.

World Hanmadang

  • Leon Koh Wee Kiat (Team Manager/Coach)
  • Jeric Ang Shi Cheng (Athlete)

For the World Poomsae, the STF sent Joyce Lim, Sherman Wee and Samuel Lee to Vietnam for 2 months of intensive training.  Vietnam has produced world champions for poomsae and our athletes have benefited from the exposure.  Unfortunately, Samuel Lee had to pull out because of knee injury sustained towards the tail end of the training stint.

Singapore will also be represented at the World Youth Camp which will be held from 1 to 6 August 2011 in Muju, Korea.  The following were selected for the camp.

  • Sister Linda Sim (Official)
  • Soh Hong Ray (Athlete)
