PINOY WUSHU ATHLETES PREPARE FOR SEA GAMES


PhilBoxing.com


MANILA (PNA) - The next eight months will be a very busy period for the Wushu Federation of the Philippines in its preparation for the coming Southeast Asian Games in Myanmar and the country’s hosting of the Asian Junior Wushu Championships three months from now.

Next week the WFP is sending a 20-man contingent to China as part of its build up program for the SEA Games set this December.


A total of 13 sanda (sparring ) and six to seven taolu (form) bets will comprise the delegation that will be leaving on May 6 for its six-month training in the provinces of Xianxi (sanda) and Fujian (taolu).

Among the prominent members of the contingent include World Cup champions Dembert Arcita and Jessie Aligaga, Benjie Rivera, Francisco Solis, Ernie Braca, Evita Zamora, Noel Alabata, among others.

But what WFP executives headed by secretary-general Julian Camacho, appearing in Tuesday’s PSA Forum at Shakey’s Malate, is eagerly looking forward to is the staging of the Asian junior tilt here from August 8 to 12 at the Makati Coliseum.

Accompanied by wushu official Red Dumuk in the session presented by the Philippine Amusements and Gaming Corporation and Shakey’s, Camacho said the association is looking to win at least seven gold medals in the first major tournament to be held in the country since the 1996 Asian Wushu Championships.

Since it was first played in the 1991 Southeast Asia Games, the country’s national wushu team has already won a total of 93 gold medals in various international tournaments. And by aiming for a possible seven gold medal haul during the five-day Asian junior tilt, the wushu federation hopes to reach the century mark by August.

“The target is achievable,” said Camacho.

The country’s hosting of the tournament that features 38 countries, also got a big boost as President Aquino ordered President Proclamation 554 declaring August 2013 as the `Philippine Wushu Month.’

In case the 100th gold medal remains elusive here, Dumuk said the association hopes to accomplish it in the World Wushu Championships in Kuala Lumpur by October.

Camacho said the WFP is likewise eyeing to bring the world tournament here by 2015.

“We will know by October siguro during the World Wushu Congress if we will be given the rights to host it,” he said.

By December, it’s off to Myanmar for the Filipino wushu bets where they hope to equal if not surpass the two gold, four silver, and three bronze medals they won in the 2011 edition of the meet in Indonesia, despite efforts of the organizers to trim the number of sanda events where the country stands a chance to win several golds.

“Lagi naman tayong handa. It’s either we equal or aim for a better achievement,” said Camacho.

A total of 22 events in wushu will be at stake in Myanmar, including 17 in taolu and only five in sanda.
