Day 2 – 2nd Taolu World Cup, Yangon

2nd Taolu World Cup Concludes Successfully


The second day of competition at the 2nd Taolu World Cup in Yangon continued with compelling and dramatic events in long weapons, taijijian and duilian. By the end of the event Hong Kong came out first in the rankings, with six gold, two silver and two bronze medals for a total of 10 altogether. China ranked second, with six perfect golds.

Malaysia ranked third with five gold, one silver and two bronze; Vietnam ranked fourth with one gold, three silver and one bronze; Macau ranked fifth with one gold, two silver and four bronze. The home team, Myanmar, followed in sixth place with one gold, two silver and two bronze medals.


The afternoon’s zenith came when Myanmar’s Nyein Chan KO KO took gold in men’s taijijian and hundreds of schoolchildren burst into cheers of uncontainable joy. When he received his medal at the top of the podium, and the Myanmar national anthem played, hundreds of voices sang along proudly in unison as the flag was raised.


At the end of the competition the athletes marched out with flags for the closing ceremony, and IWUF Executive Vice President Anthony Goh gave an eloquent speech, thanking the Yangon LOC and all participants for a wonderful event. Then the IWUF flag was passed from Myanmar to Japan, where the 3rd Taolu World Cup will be hosted in 2020.
