SHAH ALAM: Selangor Taekwondo Association (STA) emerged as the overall champions in the Eighth MTA-Magnum National Inter-Club Championships at the Malawati Indoor Stadium here yesterday with a total haul of nine gold medals.
They also won six silvers and 10 bronzes to finish ahead of Sarawak TKD Federation (4-0-5) and the Armed Forces (2-3-3).
In the two-day championships, Peter Lee (featherweight) and S. Mahendraraj (middleweight) contributed the gold medals to take the STA's tally to nine.
The championships were marred by the lack of medical facilities.
Universal Martial Art TKD Academy's S. Devraj was knocked unconscious by Mahendraraj in the semi-finals but received only limited attention from the inexperienced medical personnel.
There was only one ambulance available and it was being used to send another exponent, who had suffered an injury earlier, to the Klang General Hospital. Devraj was only sent to the hospital 30 minutes later.
