National wushu athlete Wong Weng Son recently won a gold medal in the men's changquan event at the 2023 World Wushu Championships in Texas.
The 31-year-old beat Indonesia’s Seraf Naro Siregar who took the silver medal and compatriot, Clement Ting Su Wei who claimed the bronze.
The victory was extra meaningful for Wong who in 2019, won a silver for the same event in Shanghai, China.
The Malaysian contingent also won a silver medal in the men’s daoshu thru Su Wei, one silver each from Sydney Chin Sy Xuan and Loh Ying Ting (women's taijijian and changquan) and one bronze from Tan Cheong Min (women's nangun).
