15-year-old compiling impressive taekwondo resume (2014/04/03)
Tonight we go to Hualien to visit one of Taiwan’s best young taekwondo athletes. Fresh off a gold medal performance late last month, Wang Chen-yu says his goal is to eventually win gold at the Olympics.
At the WTF World Junior Taekwondo Championships, Hualien resident Wang Chen-yu faced Kazakh opponent Artur Kim in the finals. Between careful defense and fierce kicks, Wang was in control the entire bout. In round three he built a big lead and easily held on to win gold.
This is Wang at junior high school following his latest accolade. When practicing with classmates, Wang still remains alert.
I just have to believe in myself and listen to the coaches.
Wang is in his third year of junior high and stands 177 centimeters tall. He began learning taekwondo seven years ago and started piling up awards when he entered junior high. His ultimate goal is to win gold at the Olympics.
I think he could be the dark horse of the Taiwan team. We are doing everything we can to assist this athlete, and we hope the nation can also help cultivate this future star.
Wang is writing youth taekwondo history and already looking ahead to bigger stages.
