Willy Wang of Philippines Won Wushu Gold at Beijing Olympics 2008

Filipinos have the reason to be proud as our fellow countryman Willy Wang bagged a gold medal on the Wushu demonstration event at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. He defeated 20 other competitors from different countries at the men’s nanquan and nangun event.

Eventhough, Wushu is not an official game and his medal is not counted at the official overall medal tally count, still we should be proud for the gold. Two other Filipino wushu artists Benjie Rivera and Mary Jane Estimar received bronze medals after defeating their opponents.

Here's a video of Willy Wang showcasing his skills on Wushu. Go go Team Philippines!
