Rosyth School was finally beaten. For six successive years, the school had emerged tops in the Rosyth School Invitational Taekwondo Tournament. Little did it expect the result to be different this year.
However, the latest edition of the tournament held on 28 July 2007 atRosyth School Indoor Basketball Court
proved that the outcome of a competition could be unpredictable. West View Primary surprised everyone when it edged the defending champion for the handsome challenge trophy. It collected four golds, 1 silver and 1 bronze for the overall title.
Rosyth had to be contented with the second place as it could garner only 3 gold, 9 silver and 7 bronze medals. The result would be different if it could only convert one of the silver medals to gold.
Three other schools – Naval Base Primary, St Anthony Primary and St Stephen Primary – also netted 3 gold medals each. Any of them could also have finished at the top if it was able to win one more gold medal.
What it all meant? The tournament which attracted 18 schools and produced 24 champions was keenly contested. And it could have been anybody’s game.
Mdm Celine Ng Kim Choo, Principal of the RosythSchool and Mr Milan Kwee, President of the Singapore Taekwondo Federation (STF), took turns to give away the prizes sponsored by the STF.
