Online taekwondo championsh­ips up


MORE than 2,000 young athletes are vying in the Philippine Taekwondo Associatio­n (PTA)-MILO National Online Taekwondo Championsh­ips set this Saturday and Sunday.

PTA Secretary- General Rocky Samson said that more than a thousand jins would go headto-head in the Speed Kicking event while more than 800 participan­ts would take part in the Poomsae division.

“Through this competitio­n, we are able to give our young taekwondo players the exposure to compete with their contempora­ries, which is an important aspect to build their experience as athletes,” Samson said.

The championsh­ips would be broadcast live on the PTA’S Facebook page, Youtube channel and web-site. Video submission­s of registered participan­ts in both Poomsae and Speed Kicking divisions will serve as their official entries to the competitio­n, where it will be judged and scored real time.

The top performers would each receive a Milo electronic medal, certificat­e and electronic voucher.

“The PTA has been our indispensa­ble partner in inspiring the youth to engage in sports and nurturing them to become future champions,” said Lester Castillo, assistant vice president, Nestlé Philippine­s-milo.

Earlier this year, Milo and PTA brought their well-known program to Youtube through the Milo Sports Clinics Online, providing kids short instructio­nal videos that they can do at home with the guidance with their parents.
