It was an excellent comeback after winning the silver medal in the taekwondo event during the summer Palarong Pambansa—Secondary Division and another silver medal during the 2015 Smart National Taekwondo in Manila.
The bemedalled Ms. Trocio in the Taekwondo—Girl’s Division was joined by two other taekwondo competitor-schoolmates namely, Christian Zen Abellar who took home the gold medal and Charles Justine Abellar who garnered the Silver Medal.
These Nicholasian golden panthers excelling in this particular Korean martial art are under the tutelage of the NTU Eagle’s owner and coach, Mr. Yonin Telequido.
The three students will represent the CSNT-R Taekwondo Team during the City Meet of Talisay City on October 6-7, 2016.
Moreover, Ms. Trocio will be part of the select group who will bring the torch to light the City Meet Cauldron in the opening ceremonies.
