25 golden medales for Sonkal
Ondřej Vrábel, 11.10.2005 – First october saturday was dedicated to first regional prague competition. Again, Sonkal organized it as in years before. For this year we changed location to sport hall Petřiny South where we have regular trainings for second year. Huge hall was great for still rising number of competitors. 151 competitors from 8 tkd schools took part this time. President of Czech ITF federation Ing. Ladislav Burian (V.Dan) and also international instructor for Czech Republic master Hwang Ho Yong visited us during competition.
As always taekwondoists competed in tul, matsogi, t-ki and wirok. As a surprise we prepared demonstration special techniques contest for both men and women (juniors and seniors together). Principle was pretty the same like in atletics and high-jump – we increased heights for 5 cm after every succesful jump. Contest was dramatic as it should be J After first techniques – nopi chagi – Lucie Kolmanová was in lead and Linda Deutschová was runner-up very close to her (only 5 cm difference). But on dollyo chagi Linda lose a lot, because she passed only first height of 220cm and then both jumps for 225 were scored be referees by 0 point. Lucka went up to 250 cm and was in lead with huge difference of 25 cm before Ilona Hambergerová from Hwa-rang tkd school, Linda was third. Last technique – nomo chagi – gave us the champion. Lucka jump over basic 170cm, but wasn´t able to jump more. Ilona passed 180cm, but Linda was able to jump over wonderful 230 cm and won whole contest.
There were great atmosphere through whole contest, which helped a lot to all competitors as you can see on great results. Becauese of time schedule problems we had to put some restrictions to men competition which meant that we knew results after dollyo chagi (second technique) , otherwise we had opporutnity to see Pavel Zavadil jumping 270 cm on nopi chagi. Pavel won his category, Filip Konár (Sonkal) was second and Petr Šindler (Ge-Baek Hosin sool) ended on third place.
Whole regional competition brought us great results, which we didn´t expected even in the most optimistic dreams J Our tkd school won the most succesful tkd school of the competition and our students took 4 titles:
Second round of regional competition will be organized by Ge-Baek Hosin sool school on 4th December.
