Association president Khoo Bu Leong said his students did well in the tournament despite the event’s different points counting system.

“Although the system is based on point deduction, our students still managed to bag some medals which is a fantastic achievement,” he said.

Association secretary Lee Wei Kean also congratulated the students for winning the medals.

“They have done well. We hope they can train harder and be well prepared for the next tournament,” he added.
