Cebelle Takes Home First Medal for Selangor in SUKMA XIX

Congratulations to Mandy Cebelle Chen from Sri KDU International School for winning the Bronze medal in the Taiji Quan event in the SUKMA XIX recently. It was the first SUKMA medal for the state of Selangor. Twenty female Taiji exponents from Malaysia and two from Brunei participated in the prestigious biennial Games. Cebelle achieved a score of 9.43 where she outperformed the 2017 Kuala Lumpur SEA Games silver medallist from Brunei and the bronze medallist from Sarawak. In the Taiji Jian (Sword) event, Cebelle reached 6th position with a final score of 9.38.

Cebelle demonstrated incredible resilience as she was competing against an Asian Games champion, SEA Games medallists and a newly crowned World University medallist in both her events. She kept her composure to deliver her routines perfectly in a highly competitive environment and she defied the odds by her Bronze achievement.

Well done, Cebelle!
