Brunei national wushu athlete Hosea Wong yesterday won second place in the Men’s Optional Taijiquan event of the 2024 University Wushu Championship in Harbin, China.

Wong scored 9.480, just 0.020 points shy of the first place, which was won by China’s ShiXuan Zhao with a score of 9.500. Third place went to Hong Kong’s Pak Long Sat.

National wushu coach Zhao Chunjie and Li Hui said they are proud of Wong’s performance, adding that the two months of training prior to the event vastly improved their charge’s skills.

They also attributed the successful campaign to the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports for making their participation in the Chinese competition possible. – James Kon
