Karate martial artist wins silver at 16th ASIAD

QĐND – Wednesday, November 24, 2010, 20:33 (GMT+7)

Vietnamese karate martial artist Nguyen Anh scored a silver after defeating opponents from Iran, Taipei (China) and the Republic of Korea to take part in the final match of her division at the 16th Asian Games on November 24.

Anh competed as the defending champion of the Asian Games’ under 50kg event.

Facing Ghasemi Laskou Kalayeh Fetemeh from Iran, she was held to a draw for most of the competing time but succeeded to score 2 successive points in only one minute of extra time.

Anh easily defeated Chen Yen Hui from Taiwan (China) in the quarter-final with a final score of 4-1 and entered the semi-final.

In the early minutes of the semi-final match, Anh played an offensive style and won 2 points to secure a place in the final to compete with Chinese rival Li Hong, who won the championship title at the World Tournament in Serbia in October.

Despite competing very hard at the final, Anh failed to score and lost to 2-0 Hong.

This was also the first medal for the Vietnamese karate team in their first day of competition.
