Another Rich Harvest for the National Players

10 senior and 6 junior players returned to Singapore on 14 February 2011 with a good collection of trophies and medals from the Asian Cities Taekwondo Championships staged from 12 to 13 February 2011 in Hongkong.

The players won 4 gold, 3 silver and 5 bronze medals to chalk up enough points to finish among the overall trophy winners. They clinched a third place in the senior male division, finished second in the senior female division and took the fourth position in the male junior division.

Their success came hot on the tail of their credible showing in the Commonwealth Taekwondo Championships in Chennai, India. In the event, their counterparts in poomsae collected 5 gold, 1 silver and 1 bronze medals.

Special mention must be given to the four gold medalists for their scintillating performances. Jason Tan, Jacqueline Quek, Nurul Shafinas and Muhammad Norhalim fought tooth and nail several rounds to emerged champions. Their outstanding efforts were only matched by their commendable display of sportsmanship.

The other medal winners are as follows.

  • Keith Ong (Silver)
  • Chua Juan Juan (Silver)
  • Charlotte Tang (Silver)
  • Jordan Tay (Bronze)
  • Christopher Lee (Bronze)
  • Daniele Tan (Bronze)
