与世界400多队伍耶鲁比拼世界学者杯冠军赛 Tournament of Champions 2022
In November, 8 students from Han Chiang High School went to Yale University empty-handed, and returned with gold and silver awards adorning their necks – including the position of 3rd in Malaysia.
After winning 220 gold and silver medals and 17 trophies at the Penang Regional Rounds, as well as 94 gold medals, 51 silver medals, and 11 trophies in the Bangkok Global Round, Han Chiang High School once again sent a total of 8 students to the Tournament of Champions – the final round of the yearly World Scholar’s Cup season – held at Yale University. Among the 8 students, 3 of them were sponsored by the school. The competition was held from November 11th to November 16th, hosted by the Yale International Relations Association.
The 8 students participated in the Senior Division of the round: Estelle Sia Yu Qi (SE11), Samuel Phun Wei Xen (C13), Yeoh Soon Meng, (JSE11), Ooi Yan Jin (SE12), Yap Q-Ann (SE12), Christina Lee Davin (JSE13), Pang Jun Wen (S1), and Teoh Qi En (J31).
Going up against over 400 teams from 30 countries, Han Chiang High School’s teams returned from the States with glory, achieving a total of 73 medals and 1 trophy, including 44 gold medals and 29 silver medals. The team – consisting of Estelle Sia, Yeoh Soon Meng, and Samuel Phun – placed 3rd in Malaysia, 8th Overall Champion Team in Southeast Asia, and 26th Overall Champion Team. Across the several events, their notable achievements were placing 6th in Team Writing, 15th in Team Challenge, 51st in Team Debate, and 76th in Team Bowl.
As for the team including Ooi Yan Jin, Yap Q-Ann, and Christina Lee Davin, they placed 41st Overall Champion Team, 34th Team Challenge, 36th Team Bowl, and 108th Team Debate. Lastly, Pang Jun Wen and Teoh Qi En won 12th Team Debate and 124th Team Bowl.
A series of competitive events took place in the theatres of the prestigious Yale University followed as: the Scholar’s Challenge, Collaborative Writing, Team Debate, and the Scholar’s Bowl. Han Chiang High School competed against the top champions of other global rounds in an extremely competitive field with their students in less-than-optimal conditions. Competing on a more cut-throat scale, as well as the inconsistencies from any violations in competitive integrity in the Bowl, Han Chiang High School still placed among the top spots against thousands despite the difficulties and challenges faced.
Gaining precious insight from their experiences in Yale University, Han Chiang High School’s students were rewarded with irreplaceable knowledge and experience, while also bringing back glory for the country, and by default, the school.
