(KPL) The Lao National Taekwondo Federation sent seven taekwondo fighters for a three-month training stint in the Republic of Korea to prepare them for the coming competition in the 25th SEA Games in Vientiane in December 2009.

The federation held a farewell ceremony for its athletes on 29 July and this event was attended by the President of Lao National Taekwondo Federation, Mr Vilay Douangmany.

Mr Vilay, who delivered the farewell speech, advised the sportsmen to train hard, to dutifully obey their instructors and to learn new techniques.

During their training, Lao fighters would be competing in the Korean Taekwondo Open and other competitions in Korea and such experiences would further condition them to reach their peak.

Three of the Lao fighters would be participating in the World Taekwondo Championship in Denmark and after that they will become back to Laos and continue to train in the National Training Centre in Sikeuth, Vientiane.

In order to give the best training the federation recruited Jin Jung Woo, a South Korean and a world class trainer in this sport to train the Lao team. He won the world taekwando championship title in 1996 and he trained the Lao team in 2003.
