Filipino Wushu athlete won gold in Beijing.

Just after the lackluster campaign for gold of the RP team at the Beijing Olympics has ended, a big consolation came from the Wushu team after Willy Wang won a gold medal in the sports demonstration event yesterday (Friday).

Willy Wang vanquished 20 other competitors at the men’s nanguan and nangun event. Two other Filipino wushu athletes are assured of a bronze medal following their victory from their respective fights in the opening round.

Wushu, however, is just a demonstration sport in the Beijing Olympics so Wang’s gold medal will not reflect in the official medal tally.
