Cordillera - A proud iKalinga has won gold medal in Taekwondo during the recently concluded 13th World Taekwondo Culture Expo in South Korea. 

Engr. Jeffrey Ysmael, an employee of the city local government and working at the City Building and Architecture Office took home the award in the Under-40 Men Poomsae category.

The competition was held online due to the pandemic so Ysmael decided to make his own video and sent it to the organizers. 

He was surprised to win the 40-under category besting other taekwondo practitioners from countries like Croatia, Greece, Iraq, Ghana, Finland, the United State of America, Saudi Arabia, Kyrgyzstan and Zambia.

He won an award package that includes a gold medal, a certificate and a whole set of uniform and a shirt.

Ysmael is a member of the Philippine Taekwondo Association team which competed in various Taekwondo competitions in the world. 

He also organized local taekwondo associations as part of his contribution of keeping the youth away from bad influences.
