The Hong Kong squad took home two champions' trophies at the 13th Asian Cities Gold Cup Taekwondo Championships. Poon Chun-ho defeated Shenzhen to win the male bantamweight championship, while Wu Sze-ngo beat Guangzhou for the female bantamweight crown. The tournament was held on February 7 and 8 at the Kowloon Park Sports Centre. Participants included representatives from Singapore, Chinese Taipei, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Malaysia, India and Mongolia. Poon, who has captured three titles in previous tournaments, said he was rather lucky to win this time. 'In the beginning rounds I was not warmed up properly and I did not feel good, but I was still able to pull out wins,' he said. 'In the championship match I made a major mistake by kicking the opponent in the face when he was down on the floor. 'I could have got disqualified for that, but instead my opponent was too hurt to fight on and I was awarded the win. I got really lucky.' Poon said he needed to become better at estimating the distance between himself and his opponent, and at keeping calm. He said his focus now is on representing Hong Kong in the upcoming East Asian Games. Wu, who is a third-year student at City University of Hong Kong, said she had won three matches to take the championship. 'The final match against Guangzhou was the toughest,' she said. 'I only won by a slight margin, 1-0. The pressure on me was huge because the Guangzhou team had defeated us in a number of matches in other categories. I was so happy that I could win a title for the Hong Kong squad.' Wu said her goal now is to earn a place in the Hong Kong team for the East Asian Games.
