PTA-Milo online taekwondo national championships set this weekend

ONLINE taekwondo action takes front and center this weekend as the Philippine Taekwondo Association (PTA) and Milo Philippines hold their national championships.

Adjusted to the conditions presented by the coronavirus pandemic, the PTA-MILO national taekwondo championships will be held on a digital arena from Nov. 21 to 22.

Some 2,000 young athletes are expected to showcase their skills and compete in the speed kicking and poomsae categories.

“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,” said PTA secretary-general Rocky Samson as to the significance of the tournament and their decision to forge ahead despite the limitations brought about by the pandemic.

The championships will be broadcast live on the PTA’s Facebook page, YouTube channel, and website. Video submissions of registered participants in both the poomsae and speed kicking divisions serve as their official entries to the competition, where it will be judged and scored real time. The top winners of both divisions will each receive a Milo electronic medal, certificate and electronic voucher.

For Milo, the staging of the National Online Taekwondo Championships reaffirms its commitment to supporting children’s drive to become champions not only on the sporting stage, but also in life.

“We look forward to seeing our athletes exhibit their sporting excellence and may this motivate them to continue their champion journey and aspire for greatness,” said Lester P. Castillo, assistant vice-president, Nestlé Philippines – Milo. — MASM
