GOLD TO AUSTRALIA!

Australia has again broken through to score not one but two gold medals at the The 6th World Traditional Wushu Championships which were held from October 23 to 29, 2014 in Chizhou City, Anhui Province, China.

This follows on from our gold medal tally at the the 5th Traditional World Wushu Championships in 2012.

First place wins went to Kung Fu Wushu Australia Team members
Edward NUGENT (International Male Group E Other Taijiquan) and
Sandra CATHRO (International Female Group D Other Quanshu)

These Gold Medal wins were supported by 11 Silver medals and 14 Bronze further augmented by many top ten places by other Australian athletes. So significant was the medal tally that Australia placed third in the world at this event.

A full list of our First, Second and Third medal winners appears here.
