HKBU students shine at Taiwan inter-collegiate taekwondo competition

浸大學生揚威台灣大專院校跆拳道錦標賽

The HKBU Taekwondo team, comprising current students and alumni, gained a number of honours in the Taiwan Hung Kuang Cup Inter-collegiate Taekwondo Competition, winning the overall championship in the Female Open Group and becoming first runner-up in the General Group and the Male Open Group.
 
Siu Chung-yin (Associate Degree) was champion in the Male Black Belt Open Group while Cheng She-wan (Geography, Year 4) was first runner-up in the Female Yellow Belt Group.
 
Chung-yin said that compared with Hong Kong, there is a stronger following for taekwondo in Taiwan and the scale of competition is larger. She-wan added that the female section of the competitions in Hong Kong focused mainly on black belt holders, so she needs to go to Taiwan to acquire more experience. “During the competition process, I gained a lot of valuable experience which made me understand that attitude is the key to success. Therefore, I remained relaxed and this made me perform better and better.” 
 
Having achieved such excellent results, the team members sincerely thanked HKBU for its support and for the guidance and encouragement from the coach and all teammates. “The HKBU taekwondo team not only has a significant number of members but also has considerable strength. I can understand the different fighting styles and improve my performance through practicing with my teammates,” Chung-yin said.

由學生及校友組成的浸大跆拳道代表隊參加台灣弘光盃大專院校跆拳道錦標賽,勇奪女子公開組全場總冠軍及一般組亞軍和男子公開組總亞軍;隊員蕭重言(副學士)及鄭舒允(地理學四年級)分別取得男子黑帶公開組冠軍和女子黃帶組亞軍。
 
重言表示,台灣大專界的跆拳道氣氛較香港濃厚,比賽規模較大;舒允則補充,香港女子比賽多集中於黑帶賽,所以要到台灣累積經驗,並說:「在比賽過程中,我得到寶貴的經驗,明白心態是致勝的關鍵。學懂放鬆後,成績進步了。」
 
重言及舒允奪得理想成績,他們感謝浸大提供一系列支援,而教練及隊友的支持亦不可或缺。重言說:「浸大跆拳道代表隊不但人數多,而且實力不俗,與隊友一同訓練,我了解不同風格,有助改善表現。」
