JACK Janggo Natividad powered San Beda to its first men’s gold in the NCAA taekwondo online speed kicking competition yesterday.

Natividad ruled the flyweight division 6.883 points to beat College of Saint Benilde’s Rey Isaiah Fausto, whose 6.558 gave him a silver medal.

The Red Jins had another podium finisher in Johann Camillus Sanhi, who had 6.167 points.

Sanhi was actually tied with Arellano University’s Rey Tambulian Jr., who also tallied 6.167, but the San Beda bet captured the bronze medal via tiebreak.

Another Chiefs jin, Harchrobe Mondigo Nombre, finished fifth with 5.483 points.

The Blazers earlier won their first men’s speed kicking gold courtesy of finweight Ivan Murray Solimen.
