Congratulations to US National Collegiate Team members Rene Chen and Long Nguyen, who competed at the World Taekwondo Poomsae Championships in Vladivostok, Russia, from July 29-31, 2011. Rene competed in the Women's Senior 1 Individual division. She placed 5th in her preliminary bracket, and 9th in the semifinals, missing the top 8 finals by the slimmest of margins. Long Nguyen competed with his brothers Huy Nguyen and Anh Nguyen in the Men's 1st Team division. While they performed well, they did not advance to the semifinals. NCTA athletes Lance Supnet and Hazel Cruz also competed in the 1st Mixed Pair division, but did not advance.
