Day 1 – 2nd Taolu World Cup, Yangon

 2nd Taolu World Cup Day 1


The first day of competition at the 2nd Taolu World Cup in Yangon was packed with stellar wushu performances from start to finish. World Champions defended their titles, and some newcomers blazed to unexpected glory. China won six gold medals, Hong Kong took a total of five, with three gold; Malaysia snatched two gold medals, and a silver and a bronze. Macau followed closely with one gold, one solver and three bronze.

Paloma Panos Milla was thrilled to win a bronze medal in jianshu for Spain, offering us a fresh new face of a champion. And perhaps the most thrilling moments of the day came when the Myanmar Wushu team took to the carpet amidst roars from the packed stadium of local wushu fans. When Nyein Chan KO KO won the bronze medal in men’s taijiquan the audience erupted in cheers and screams of joy. In the afternoon, their dreams cametrue again when Aye Thitsar MYINT fought her way to the silver podium in women’s nandao. Myanmar star Sandi OO didn’t medal in her highly competitive women’s jianshu category, but her beautifully elegant and passionate performance made her the darling of the day.

There was much celebration after the medal ceremony, but athletes returned to their hotel for a good rest in anticipation of Day 2 tomorrow.
