The enhanced community quarantine did not stop one lady jin from University of Santo Tomas from bringing glory to the country.
Three-time UAAP Poomsae champion Jocel Ninobla bagged gold in the Under-30 Female Division of the first-ever Online Daedo Open European Poomsae Championships last Sunday.
Ninobla, who won gold in the women’s individual event during her last year in UST back in Season 80, garnered scores of 7.53 during her Koryo performance and 7.60 in Pyongwon for a total average score of 7.565.
Placing second and third were Raquel Sanchez of Spain and Mahsa Sadeghi of Iran, who both had identical scores of 7.515. Sanchez held the tiebreaker advantage.
A total of 111 jins competed in the division.
Late last year, Ninobla struck gold in the women’s recognized event of the 2019 Southeast Asian Games. She also won silver in the women’s recognized team event together with La Salle’s Rinna Babanto and fellow Thomasian Aidaine Laxa.
The Online Daedo Open European Poomsae Championships is an experimental event organized by the European Taekwondo Union.
