Day 3: All Action, All the Time, All Day Long

Taekwondo’s favorite nun wins gold at age 68

[By NBC-1TV K, Y, Yi] GOYANG, Korea (April 22, 2022) - It was another day of thrills and spills, spins and flips, tricks and kicks as the Goyang 2022 World Taekwondo Poomsae Championships stormed on.

At the end of the day, host country Korea was leading the medal tables with 16 golds, followed by Chinese Taipei with four, and Spain and USA with three each.
The day’s schedule was not as packed as the multiplicity of finals that were contested on Day 2.  However, the atmosphere was even more electric.

Day 3 was a Saturday. The venue, the KINTEX exhibition in Goyang, is a popular spot for weekend getaways by Seoulites. And the Covid pandemic is – at long last – fading away. 

This combination of circumstance saw the public flood into the venue, filling the seating and raising the volume and granting the athletes a crowd to perform to.
Among many, many notable performances a very special one was delivered by one of the great – and longest serving - characters in the World Taekwondo family.
 
Sister Linda Sim won gold in the Recognized Individual Female Over 65 category. A great result for the high kicking nun, and a tribute to the longevity that Taekwondo instills.

“I feel on top of the world!” the Singaporean said. “This is my dream come true.”

Her prior best performance had been a bronze at the Taipei 2018 World Taekwondo Poomsae Championships.

For full details of all winners in all the day’s contested categories, please find attached the result files.
