DABAWENYA Sydney Sy Tancontian will face a tougher contest in the World Sambo Championships in Cheongju, Korea on November 8 to 10 after salvaging a bronze medal in the World Youth and Juniors Sambo Championships 2019 at the Sports Complex Uzbekistan recently.

While she celebrates her bronze finish in the women juniors 80+ kg event, 19-year-old Tancontian said, “For seniors naman po ang World Sambo Championships.”

Thus, it would be more challenging for her as she would be up against more experienced and older players.

Tancontian, who recently clinched a gold in the 2019 Asian Sambo Championships in India, defeated Tetiana Kostenko of Ukraine, 4-0, in their battle for bronze in Uzbekistan.

“Sobrang grateful po na na bless po ako ulit. And magandang exposure po para sa nalalapit na SEA Games,” Tancontian added.

She also got bronzes in 2019 Chungju World Martial Arts Masterships in Chungju, South Korea in September, World Sambo Championships 2018 held in Bucharest, Romania and in 2019 Sambo World Cup Kharlapiev Memorial Competition in Moscow, Russia in March 2019.
