Closing Ceremony - Looking Ahead
The 14th World Wushu Championships closing ceremony seemed to come all-too-soon, summing up five days of blood, sweat and tears as IWUF and LOC representatives acknowledged all of the years of training on the part of the athletes, as well as the months and years of preparation work by the city of Kazan to ensure that the 14th WWC was as successful as it could possibly be.
During the 14th IWUF Congress the Executive Board announced that Shanghai will be the host city for the 15th World Wushu Championships in 2019, and during the 14th WWC closing ceremony the flag was passed to the Shanghai LOC representatives, demonstrating that the IWUF - and wushu community as a whole - has the utmost confidence that Shanghai will stage an event of the highest standards. Two years may seem like a long time to wait, but for athletes that time will pass in the blink of an eye -- and in the mean time here's one upcoming event to whet the appetite of wushu fans everywhere!
