Wushu Warrior Agatha Wong has claimed her second gold medal at the 30th Southeast Asian Games, having battled through injuries and cramps during her performance. She won her first gold medal of the games last Sunday for the women’s taijiquan.
Wong came out victorious at the women’s wushu taolu taijijian event this Tuesday at the World Trade Center. The 21-year-old beat out 8 other competitors by scoring a 9.65 to rule the competition. Vietnam’s Thi Minh Huyen Tran followed for the silver with a score of 9.63 while Brunei’s Basma Lachkar claimed the bronze after scoring 9.62.
According to Inquirer, Wong talked about what an honor it was to win for and represent the Philippines. “I’m still trying to think ‘did I really win?’ because I’ve been through so much and I’m grateful to get this opportunity,” she shared in Filipino.
