A Good Championship

The 3rd edition of the People’s Association-Singapore Taekwondo Federation (PA-STF) Taekwondo Championships was conducted safely and smoothly on 29 July 2012 at Toa Payoh Sports Hall. The kyorugi players produced lots of fast and furious exchanges while the poomsae players displayed some textbook movements with grace and beauty.

The guest of honor for the event, Mr Lim Biow Chuan, Adviser to Mountbatten Grassroots Organizations and Second Adviser to Marine Parade Grassroots Organizations, is an active 4th dan taekwondo blackbelt under STF. He witnessed a demonstration given by the national demonstration team and some selected finals and went on to give away the medals and trophies.

The other important guests who gave away some of the medals were Mr Chia Tze Yee, PA’s Group Director (Engagement Cluster – Interests) and Ms Ang lay Kwang, PA’s Director (Community Sports).

Mr Milan Kwee, STF President, was present throughout the event to ensure that the event went according to plan and to welcome and attend to the VIP guests.

The championships included, among other categories, family competition which encouraged family bonding. The event saw different combinations – father and son; mother and son, father and daughter, etc – competing against one another. It was interesting to note that the standards demonstrated by the family teams are credible.

The team event, which aimed to foster racial cohesiveness, saw teams comprising at least two ethnic groups showing their skills, unity and harmony through their performance to impress the judges. Their regular practices as a team were evident from their outstanding display which resulted in the keen competition.

All in all, it had been a good championship.  

The overall results are as follows.

  • 1st : Tampines North CSC
  • 2nd : Punggol Central CSC
  • 3rd : Thomson CSC
  • 4th : The Jelutung CSC

More results are attached.
