Tshomlee go , Toni Rivero- Taekwondo Schedule Olympics Philippines

Tshomlee Go will face aussie taekwondo champion in his first match, although 1 inch shorter than Go, Mr. Hong Philippines Taekwondo coach feels that Ryan Carnelli is no push-over for Tshomlee.

The match starts at 10 am and if go is victorious fights again at the same day in the Beijing stadium at the 58kg

Rivero also fights tomorrow the match is broadcast live over cs solar

Go enters his 11:45 a.m. fight Wednesday with a psychological edge over the Australian, who reached the finals of the 2006 World Cup in Bangkok in the lighter bantamweight class.

“Sa tingin ko, maganda ang unang laban ni Tshomlee dahil tinalo na niya yung (I think Tshomlee got himself a good first fight because he has beaten the) Australian,” said Samson. “He was actually in control of their fight then and showed a lot of confidence.”

A victory over Carneli will move Go into another familiar encounter with the winner between Thailand’s Chutchawal Khawlaor and Benin’s M.A. Jean Moloise Ogoudjobi.

The Filipino featherweight both beat Chutchawal and Ogoudjobi on the way to the bronze and Olympic qualification in Manchester. The Thai, though, owns a victory over Go in the Bangkok World Cup.

Rivero, who came a victory shy of the finals in Athens, drew France’s world champion Gwladys Patience Epangue and back-to-back World Cup champion Hwang Kyung-seon in her side of the draw.

“I believe it’s going to be an early battle for medals in Toni’s draw,” said Samson. “Pag nakalusot ka dito sa dalawa (Epangue and Hwang), siguradong finalist ka na (If you get past these two, you’re sure of making the finals).”

Hwang beat Rivero in the Athens repechage after the Filipino lost the silver-medal match to Greece’s Elisavet Mystakidou.
