Our youth Athlete Chelsea Gomez has completed her Philippine training with Philippine Legend and Olympian Sir Roberto Kitoy Cruz in Manila with his Kitoy Cruz Taekwondo Academy for a couple of weeks. This international training camp culminated with participation in the Dela Salle Zobel Taekwondo Championships where Chelsea won Gold with a score of 16-6 against a cadet opponent at her first international competition. This is a fantastic opportunity, exposure and experience for Chelsea to assist with her preparation for 2020 and beyond.
