    2007-06-27 13:32:16     Xinhua

Philippine national taekwondo team has stepped up its preparation for three big international events by undergoing exclusive training in South Korean schools and participating in the Chuncheon Open championships from June 28 to July 14, local media reported on Wednesday.

"We're dead set in making a good impression in the Olympic qualifying in London, the Asian selection in Vietnam and the 24th Southeast Asian Games in Thailand," Philippine Taekwondo Association president Robert N. Aventajado was quoted by Manila Bulletin daily as saying.

"Our Korean training is going to be a big help," Aventajado said.

Twenty-two athletes will train in the best South Korean schools and gymnasiums such as the Korea National Sports University and Pung Saeng School to develop strong spirit and sharpen their skills and, at the same time, vie in the Chuncheon Open on June 29-July 4, Aventajado said.

The Chuncheon competition will serve as a tuneup for the Filipinos in their bid for Olympic slots and medals in the Thailand Southeast Asian Games.
