Kota Kinabalu: State taekwondo coach Barry Voon (pic) turned back the clock by taking one gold and a bronze at the Asia Pacific Masters Games in Penang over the weekend.

The 62-year-old who beat his opponents in the 55 and above sparring event and came third in the Poomsae (61 above) event said he felt like the good old days by competing.

"I never thought I will ever compete again after my knee injuries 30 years ago. It was a wonderful feeling to be able to compete especially at this age and I would strongly recommend others like me to get involved as well," he said.

Sabah exponents also returned with two more golds, one silver and two more bronzes with golds from Josephine Kung in the women 35-44 category sparring event and Ervin Ambu in Poomsae (51-60).

The silver was delivered by Ervin Ambu/Mujayal Ebno in the Poomsae Mix Pair while the other bronzes was won by Emmanuel Lim/Josephine Kung (Poomsae mix pair 31-40) and Mujayal Ebno in the individual Poomsae (51-60).
