Kurt Barbosa scintillates in SEAG debut with TKD -54kg gold

Taekwondo sensation Kurt Bryan Barbosa impressed in his first-ever Southeast Asian Games after bagging the gold in the men’s -54 kg, 26-10, over Indonesia’s Reinaldy Atmanegara, Monday at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium. 

The UAAP Season 81 Rookie-Most Valuable Player from National University whitewashed his opponent from the get-go, punctuating the first period with a vicious axe kick at 12-3.

Another head kick pushed in the lead in the second. Even as the Indonesian scored in the third, the lead was insurmountable.

Vietnam’s Hoang Duc Anh and Timor Leste’s Bonifacio Da Silva bagged the bronze medals.
