STORY SCRIPT:

Thailand enjoyed a mixed Tuesday night in the latest Taekwondo finals at Buenos Aires 2018, winning gold and silver.

Kanthida Saengsin won gold in the women’s 55Kg category. The sixteen year old beat Morroco’s Safia Salih 10-6 in a three round contest. She now adds a gold medal from a Youth Olympic Games to the World Junior Championship title she won earlier this year.

Her ambition is to win the World senior title and Olympic gold, hopefully at Tokyo 2020.

But there was disappointment for her compatriot Nareupong Thepsen, who is also a reigning World Junior Champion, in the final of the men’s 63Kg category. South Korea’s Wonhee Cho won gold, beating Thepsen 21-16 in their three round contest.
