Cordillera- Igorot Jeordan Dominguez marked history when he won the bronze medal scoring 7.52 points, in the World first Taekwondo Poomsae Grand Prix in Rome, Italy last Friday.

The president of World Taekwondo Federation, Chungwon Choue said that  the Rome Grand Prix included poomsae, a form component of the Korean martial arts, for the first time in his invitation to all national federations including the Philippines where Dominguez qualified.

"Ranked 1 to 8 ng world ang mag lalaban-laban and I'm so lucky po na na-invite ako. Nasa rank 5 po ako ngayon," said Domuinguez who won a bronze in the team poomsae of the 2018 Asian Games in Indonesia.

Dominguez thanked the Philippine Taekwondo Association and its president Grand master Sung Chon Hong for letting him have the opportunity to compete in the poomsae competition of the World Grand Prix in his Facebook page. He also extended his  appreciation to all his fellow players who encouraged him to do his best despite sleepless nights, pains, and aches that brought the Philippines' first medal in the World Grand Prix.
