Sea Games/Taekwondo: Injured Chew Chan battles her way to gold

SHE wasn't at her best but Che Chew Chan hung on to retain the women's middleweight taekwondo gold at the Vongchavalitkul Hall yesterday.

She won by the slenderest of margins, carving out a 1-0 win over Vietnam's Bui Thu Hien and that too courtesy of her opponent incurring a penalty point. Chew Chan, who qualified for the Beijing Olympics by winning the Asian Qualifier in Vietnam on Dec 1, trailed 1-0 after the first round. She drew level in the second and both exponents took a cautious approach in the third but Chew Chan was spared a sudden-death fight when the Vietnamese was twice penalised with half-point deductions."I was not in my best condition and I am thankful to have still won. I admit I was lucky but I am still recovering from an injury and the doctors have advised me to take a two-week break after the Games," said Chew Chan, who hails from Pontian, Johor.

It was her third gold of the Sea Games series as prior to Manila two years ago, she won in the Kuala Lumpur edition in 2001. Having drawn a bye into the final as only three exponents competed, Chew Chan said she will focus her sights on preparing for Beijing now. Malaysia also collected four bronze medals on the first day of taekwondo through men's middleweight Wong Kai Meng, heavyweight Rozy Khamis, women's welterweight Norfaradila Mohammad Zairy and heavyweight Shu Seo Hie.

.: the Man in action, this was during our Taekwondo Summer Camp in Pahang, mid 2007 :.

Congratulations to you, and the rest of the Sea Games medallist. you made us Malaysians proud!

Hello. I think the discourse particle for 'long time no see' is 'ma' and not 'meh'. 'Meh' is always used to ask questions related to surprise or scepticism while 'ma' is usually used to correct or cajole.
