Sinungkit ni Sydney Tancontian ang silver medal sa 2022 International University Sports Federation University World Cup Combat Sports women’s sambo nitong Miyerkoles sa Samsun, Turkey.
Kinapos ang 22-anyos na Pinay mula sa Davao City sa +80kgs heavyweight division finals kontra kay Dirgen Duygu ng host country, 1-2, sanhi ng error sa huling parte ng labanan.
Wagi si Tancontian kay Bielkova Marharyta ng Ukraine sa semifinals, 6-0.
“We are very proud of what she has achieved. She always brings the best in every competition, sayang lang, we almost got the title kase every four years lang ito and she is in her last time playing on that tourney, but what she has done is still the best in everything that she has made,” litanya ni Pilipinas Sambo Federation Inc. president Paolo Tancontian.
Hinirit pa ng kanyang ama, “Ang maganda rito ay hindi siya nagpapabaya sa training. And so far, so good she is continue to improve more and develop her skill levels. Sana lang ay ‘wag magkaroon ng major injury.” (Gerard Arce)
