Filipino wushu delivered silver medal through Jean Claude Saclag after lost their respected final contests to china, 2-0, on the fourth day of the competitions at the Asian Games in Incheon on Wednesday.
Saclag was not able to give much fight to his chinese opponent and it was no surprise that the chinese build up a timing momentum in first two rounds.
Saclag’s silver is the second for Team Philippines after fellow wushu bet Daniel Parantac also bagged one in the men’s taijiquan, which unlike sanda is a performance event in wushu.
The Filipino wushu bets have accounted for all of the country’s three medals so far, with Francisco Solis also taking home a bronze in the men’s sanda -56kg event after forcing to pull out from the semifinals due to a rib injury.
