Meet 18YO Hyderabad student Viyyapu Sai Vamsi who won Silver at Taekwondo-Indian Cup

Hyderabad: Viyyapu Sai Vamsi, a third-year B.Tech student of KL Deemed-to-be University, Hyderabad, won a Silver medal at the prestigious Taekwondo-Indian Cup (Open International Taekwondo Championship) held in Goa recently.

Over 400 participants from five countries and all states of India participated in the event that was supported by the Korean Culture Center and the Youth and Sports Promotion Association of India.

After an intense competition, Vamsi won the silver medal in the 'Taekwondo Poomsae' category, defeating two players in four rounds. The 18-year-old was recognised for his impressive performance by the jury in speed, power, and techniques. In the semi-finals, he won against a participant from Nepal. In the fierce finals, Vamsi competed against another person from India scoring 7.9.




Speaking about his victory and the grind that goes into attaining it, Vamsi said, "I was trained intensively under Master Allam Subash who taught me the gravity of discipline and hard work in martial arts. I trained fervently for four hours a day to build stamina and gain momentum. I am extremely grateful for the constant support I received from KL Deemed-to-be University, my professors, and my trainer who reinforced my confidence through numerous tournaments."

Furthermore, Vamsi was also recognised for parameters beyond those of the competition. He was accorded the 3rd prize for his movements, fluidity, and reach that surpassed the other participants.

Dr. G.P. Saradhi Varma, the Vice-Chancellor of KL Deemed-to-be University, said Vamsi's victory is a significant milestone in the university's vision of a holistic learning and development approach. "Athletics has been a significant part of the university's culture and we wholly encourage a fair balance of immersive education and passion in sports," the V-C added.
