Jalandhar, March 3, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
Five students of Bachelor of Physical Education & Sports (BPES) programme at LPU have won 7 Medals at 29th Senior National Wushu Championship- 2021. Six-Day championship, 25th Feb to 2nd March 2021, was organized by Wushu Association of India in Chandigarh.

More than 43 teams comprising of 1000+ best players from all 28 Indian States, 8 Union Territories, CRPF, BSF, ITBP, and Services Sports Control Board (SSCB) had participated. LPU medal winners will now be able to further compete at Asian and World games.

LPU student Geeta alone won three medals. In Taolu events of the championship, Geeta won Gold Medal for Nandao style; Silver for Nangun; and, Bronze Medal for Nanquan. Other students Babli has won Silver and Sandeep Kaur Bronze for Taijiquan style.

In Sanda events, Priya won bronze in 60kg weight category and Tansiv also won Bronze in 75kg weight category. LPU students had represented their respective states of Jharkhand, Punjab and Union Territory of Jammu & Kashmir.

Taolu involves martial art patterns, acrobatic movements and techniques for which LPU students were judged, and given solid points. LPU students’ basic movements including positions, kicks, punches, balances, jumps, sweeps, and throws exhibited their winning strengths. LPU winners for Sanda- a modern fighting method and a full contact sport, displayed combat deftness for boxing, kicks and wrestling.

Congratulating the winners, LPU Chancellor Mr Ashok Mittal shared: “Wushu players at LPU are now making a mark towards International level participation and winning thereof. I feel this sports-skill is not merely a sport but also a self-defence tool, especially for women and children. They should learn this art for self-protection also.”

The Championship was inaugurated by Minister for Sports, Youth & NRI Affairs, (Government of Punjab), Rana Gurmit Singh Sodhi, where he was accompanied by President, Wushu Association of India (WAI), Bhupinder Singh Bajwa.

Worth mentioning, Wushu, commonly known as Chinese Kungfu, is a complete martial art sport. Here, “Wu” stands for military or martial and “Shu” for art. In contemporary times, Wushu has become an international sport under the International Wushu Federation (IWUF).

Wushu is presently an official event at the Asian Games, Southeast Asian Games, and the World Combat Games among other multi-sport events.
