We never expected to win. Itï¿½s a sweet victory as we just wanted to go out there and have fun, said Kah Ming, who won silver in the same event with Kah Chien at the National Championships last year.
The sisters had previously dabbled in taekwondo but followed in their brother Kah Joon's footsteps by switching to judo early last year.
Kah Joon, however, failed to make it a double happiness for the Koo family as he could only manage a silver in the men's kata.
I wanted to try something new and I decided to follow my brother into judo. And then my sister followed suit, said Kah Ming.
Making the switch was challenging because we had to start from scratch. Taekwondo is all about striking an opponent while judo is all about grappling. So it took some time for us to adjust. I'm glad we made the right switch, she added.
The men's kata gold was won by Terengganu's Mohd Sahril Hafiz Abdul Wahab and Muhammad Amin Asyraaf Amir Hamzah who accumulated 368 points. It was sweet revenge for the 17-year-old Mohd Sahril as he was beaten to the gold by Kah Joon and Lim Zheng Jie at the 2011 Games.
Zheng Jie-Kah Joon had to settle for the silver after chalking up 355 points.
It was a goal we have been working towards since being paired up in January last year. Together with our coach Marjan Abdullah, we put in the hours during training and it paid off handsomely today, said Mohd Sahril
