    Win six golds in Pencak Silat Singapore Open

    Students from the Nextgen International School here have brought laurels winning gold in six events and one bronze in Pencak Silat for pre-teens under different weight categories in the Singapore Open championship held earlier this month.

    The students — K. Abhishek, D. Girish, S.P. Sandeep, G. Yashwantraj, B. Puneet Chakravarthy Rathod, K. Harshavardhan and A. Varshith — are not the ones to rest on past laurels. The young sportspersons, all below 13 years of age, are determined to prove their mettle in the World Championship to be held in Thailand in March, 2018

    “We will prove to the world that our win in the Singapore Open is not a flash in the pan,” they said after a tiring practice session under the watchful eyes of team India captain P. Manoj Sai who has honed their skills.

    The training for the students includes three hours of practice in the morning and evening sessions. “They are provided with a special diet which is less in sugar and oil contents,” the coach said.

    It will be a golden opportunity for Pencak Silat practitioners as the event is a medal event in the next Asian games.
