Philippines kicks up 2 golds as Lopez, Morrison top Taekwondo event

MANILA, Philippines - Two Philippine Taekwondo jins kicked their way into gold medal wins on Sunday, June 14 over Vietnamese opponents at the 2015 Southeast Asian Games in Singapore.

Pauline Lopez, 19, topped Thi Thu Hien Pham in the women’s under 57kg final, 20-12, while Samuel Morrison, 25, overcame Trung Duc Phan, 19-12, in the men's under 56kg final to win a gold of his own.

Lopez had previously won gold at the 2014 Asian Youth Games while Morrison, who joins 3000-meter steeplechase king Christopher Ulboc as a fellow Far Eastern University alum to win SEAG gold this year, had earned a bronze at the 2014 Asian Games.

The Philippines had earlier earned another gold in the Taekwondo event when the men's team poomsae squad earned gold on Friday.

The Philippines now has 28 gold medals at the subcontinental biennial event after the Philippines topped the men's sailing and mixed doubles tennis events earlier in the day. - Rappler.com
