KOTA KINABALU: Penampang Tug of War Association (PENTOWA) had to settle for second best at the Sandakan Outdoor Open 720kg Tug of War Championship that was held at the Sandakan Municipal Council field over the weekend.

They were narrowly beaten in rubber sets 2-1 by tournament favourites Kota Marudu Tug of War Association (KOMTOWA) in the closely contested final.

Earlier in the semi-finals, KOMTOWA defeated Papar Cilipadi while PENTOWA overcame another favourite Surun Sinurambi of Tambunan.

Both the last four matches ended 2-0.

In the final match, KOMTOWA and PENTOWA, who paraded their best pullers, including those who have represented the nation or the state, failed to settle the score after two pulls that prompted it to be decided in the third pull where KOMTOWA finally got the better of their PENTOWA opponents.

Papar Cilipadi finished in third after defeating Surun Sinurambi in the play-off.

Surun Sinurambi did not return home empty handed as they walked away with the Most Potential Team award while PENTOWA bagged the Best Team award for abiding to the TWIF-MTWA rules and regulations throughout the competition.

According to PENTOWA president Rainold J Mokujin the two-day tournament attracted quite a big crowd where they witnessed high-level competition.

Sabah Tug of War Association President Androd Sadian and organising committee chairman Tuan Kassim Selamat were there to present the prizes to the winners.
