LSGH Karatekas Win in Malaysia

Selected students of the LSGH Karatedo Team were once again tested in the international competition scene by participating in the 20th Milo International Karate Championships, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from July 5-7, 2019.

This 20th iteration of the Milo International Karate Championships was participated in by 9 countries including South East Asian Games rivals Malaysia (Host), Indonesia and Singapore with Pakistan, Nepal, India, Sri Lanka and Kuwait. There were 56 club teams from the 9 countries listed with approximately 1,250 athletes competing in 94 events.

The LSGH Karatedo Team sent in one of the smallest club teams with only seven karatekas (five LSGH students and two LSGH Karatedo Club members.) Together, they were able to lift Philippines in the country rankings to 3rd place.

The LSGH Karatedo Team also placed 7th overall in the club rankings, among the 56 clubs in contention. [Tournament statistics collected from the international software professional event management group, Sportdata.org.]

It was a hard and long road for the LSGH Karatekas who started their preparations for the international championships since summer of 2019. The LSGH Karatedo Team train four times a week, sometimes including Sundays. They also participate in tournaments every other weekend or so, just to prime for the international event.

Congratulations to the members of the LSGH Karatedo Team who represented the Philippines in the 20th Milo International Karatedo Championships, together with their coach, himself an LSGH alumnus, Rex Resurreccion!
