Taekwondo Hall Of FameĀ® Ceremony 2011

Wong Liang Ming

Country : Singapore

INDUCTION TITLE: OUTSTANDING TAEKWONDO PLAYER / SINGAPORE

Without a doubt Wong Liang Ming is the all time greatest player (male or female) ever produced in the country of Singapore. From 1979 to 2001 she dominated the female division of almost every major Taekwondo event held in Asia. Then in 2000 she captured the Gold medal at the 1st Women’s Open International Taekwondo Championships held in Los Angeles, California, USA. Below is a list of this female’s amazing competitive history. While she is extremely proud of her accomplishments, her greatest joys come from her son Jeremy Lim who simply calls her “MUM”, and her husband Lim Teong Chin who is the highest ranked Blackbelt (9th Degree) in Singapore, author of six books, and former head coach of the Singapore National Team.
