After their successful campaign in China, Baguio taek-wondo jins amassed 14 gold, 12 silver, and 17 bronze medals in the 2019 Kaohsiung International Taekwondo City Cup Championship in Taiwan last month.

The taekwondo jins from Braveheart Martial Arts under Danrey Velo proved that Cordilleran athletes are at par with their counterparts when it comes to international exposure.

Jasiel Ano Candido led the athletes with four gold and four silver medals.

He won gold medals in kyorugi (sparring) and fast kicking individual and his pair with Xedric James Faroden.

He also won silver in individual poomsae and in his pair with Khyla Guinto and in the team event and another silver in fast kicking team with Faroden and Jasiel Candido.

Three players also clinched three gold medals each aside from the silver and bronze medals for their exemplary performances.

The players with three gold medals were Xian Crag E. Eusebio, who won in individual poomsae and two in fast kicking plus the two silver medals in kyorugi and fast kick and four more bronze medals.

Jones L. Panganiban also won three gold medals in individual poomsae, kyorugi, and fast kicking individual and three bronze medals with Bona Stella Rivera, who won gold in individual poomsae, and two more gold in fast kicking pair plus three more silver medals.

Velo said the Baguio team athletes are five to 12 years old, and most of them have joined the international event three times already.

“We want to get more exposures and gain knowledge in the international arena and compete with the best from other countries.  The host, Chinese Taipei, is one of the powerhouse teams to beat in Asia and even in world championships because of the excellent training and support the government provides to their athletes,” Velo said.
