Taekwondo performers target golds at SEA Games

The Vietnamese taekwondo team failed to hit its targets at the last two Southeast Asian Games, but the team is ready to shine again at this year's Games in the Philippines.

This year, Vietnam has set a target of winning three golds, one in kyorugi (combat) and two in the poomsae (performance) categories.

There are 14 weight categories for both men and women in kyorugi, but each country can only take part in 10.

Chau Tuyet Van (centre) and her teammates are expected to win two golds in the taekwondo poomsae event at the SEA Games next month.

With the absence of world silver medalist Truong Thi Kim Tuyen who is set to compete in an Olympic qualifier in Russia, the 10-member team is relying on former champion Pham Thi Thu Hien, who won the title in 2013 in Myanmar, and took silver at last Games in Malaysia.

There will be eight poomsae events, with each team competing in six.

Chau Tuyet Van said she was excited about the mixed team’s freestyle event, a new addition at the SEA Games

The other title the team is targeting is in the women’s freestyle team event, who just won gold at the World Cup in August.

Taekwondo will be held from December 7-9 at the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex in Manila.
