0 0

The gutsy trio of Mark Lester Ragay, Mark Anthony Polo, and Vincent Ventura grabbed the gold medal in duilian to tow the Philippines to seventh-place position overall in the recently concluded 16th World Wushu Championships in Forth Worth, Texas, United States.

Earlier, Phi Wushu poster girl Agatha Wong clinched the silver medal in her favorite event, taijiquan–her second silver in the world—with 2023 Southeast Asian Games podium finisher Russel Diaz pocketing the bronze in the sanda 48kg category.

Capping PHI’s campaign were sanda warriors who narrowly failed short in their quest for the gilt: 2023 SEA Games bronze medalist Jenifer Kilapio (48Kg) who bowed to a Vietnamese, 1-2, and twice world champion and two-time Sanda World Cup gold medalist Arnel Mandal (52kg) succumbing to Chinese, 1-2, and 2023 World Combat Games silver medalist Clemente Tabugara, Jr. absorbing a 0-2 defeat against another Chinese.

The first non-individual gold medal in the world, it is the gold medal number 20 captured by the Wushu Federation Philippines (WFP) in the world championships. The 1-4-1 medal haul was the highlight of the sound rebound of WFP in the international arena.

Recovering from its poorest showing ever in the SEA Games with a measly gold medal plunging it to eighth place, WFP posted a 0-1-3 medal slate (good for sixth out of 28 NFs) and followed it up with 0-2-2 (4th among the country’s NSAs).
