Sports Scene – Episode 16, 2014

In this Episode: 


We feature Taewkondo. The Kassman Taekwondo club held its grading sessions to qualify its students from their current ‘belt statuses to a new one.

Almost fifty students from the different categories all took part in the grading; some showing nerves while others, showed that age is not a barrier. Students who performed well in their techniques and demonstration of ability will be moved from their current best statuses to a new, higher one.


The lowest belt was white, with yellow, Green, Red and brown, in between before reaching a black belt.  The grading is done a week out from the southern Regional Taekwondo championships of which a number of students from the Kassman club will be taking part. Some of the children taking part were very young. 


The PNG Karate Do Federation hosted its 7th Karate Do Open Titles at the Port Moresby National High School, and I caught up with the PNG Karate Do Federation President Karl Mari. 


To softball, the Pacific MMI Corporate Slow pitch softball tournament kicked off its games at the Bisini Diamonds in Port Moresby with a total of 29 corporate entities, who registered for the this year’s tournament. 


To Soccer, the NSL is reaching its final rounds with an only two more matches to go before the top four are fully confirmed. Hekari took on Lae at the S.I.K, while in Port Moresby, it was a big double header as Eastern Stars hosted Besta and Oro FC took on a Gigira Outfit, looking to get back after their two nil loss in round one.  Hekari continued their winning run, with a three one win over Lae FC. 


The Capital Rugby union competition played out their round two matches over the weekend at the Monier Rugby Park. Next week, the show will be in Lae as we cover the Coca Cola Morobe Golf Open, which will kick off this week.
