Sept. 17 - 25, 2014
One Gold and one Silver, a best for the Canadian team at the 4th World Junior Wushu Championship
The 2012 World Junior Wushu Championship (WJWC) was on Sept. 17 to 25, at the Ta Shi Sports Gymnasium in Macao, China. 40 countries, including China, participated. 800 athletes competed at various martial arts routines and free-hand sparing as well. As one of the highest level of competitions sponsored by the World Wushu Federation, the participating teams at the WJWC event were represented by the best athletes from each country. The Canadian Youth Wushu Team led by Master Geng Zhang Cai, with 12 athletes and 3 coaches, took part in the A, B, and C age defined categories. They succeeded in winning 2 gold, 2 silver and 3 bronze medals for Canada. Among the winners, Winnie Cai from the Calgary Taichi and Wushu College is most outstanding. She single-handedly captures two medals, the silver medal for Chang Quan (bare hand long form routine) and the gold medal for the spear in the C category (for athletes age 12 and under).
Each participating athlete is allowed to compete in no more than two events. Actually, Chang Quan is the only event held in the C category and it features the most number of competitors. 39 athletes from the 40 teams took part. The competition was most intensive. Winnie scored a 9.46 for the silver medal. In the weapons program, Winnie took the gold medal single-handedly at the spear event with an overwhelming margin. She stood proudly twice on the podium, clasping a Canadian Maple Leave flag sent with her from MLA Neil Brown, to receive the honors for Canada. It was a most glorious moment for Winnie to hear the Canadian national anthem while the Canadian national flag was being raised for all to admire.
Winnie owes her success to the meticulous instructions of her father, Master Cai Geng Zhang. She has won numerous medals, including a bronze medal at 9 years of age at the last WJWC. Her present accomplishment as the very first world wushu champion from Calgary marks a significant milestone for her future success as a Canadian athlete.
Calgary Tai Chi & Martial Arts College was founded in 1995 to serve the needs of students all over the Calgary area.
