Wushu champion given a warm welcome
Surya Bhanu Partap Singh who represented India in 6th World Paras Wushu Championship in Iran was accorded a hero’s welcome on his arrival in Jammu. Bhanu has won Gold medal by defeating Iran’s World number one ranking player in the final match.
World Paras Cup Wushu Championship was held in Iran last week in which Wushu players of 15 countries participated.
While talking to this reporter over phone from Jammu, he said: “With love and good wishes of my family members and people of our state achieving my goal was possible. Especially my coach did a lot of hard work on me and this is the result of his hard work”.
“I am very happy after winning this Gold medal. Now, my dream is to become world’s number one Wushu player,” he said.
He further added: “Our state is lacking sports facilities compared other states. Government should establish separate grounds for every game and provide full facilities to players of our state”
One of his close friend Mushtaq War said: “Partap is a guy who is working with full dedication and seriousness in his game. I very happy with his performance. Because of him the Wushu game has become popular in our state”.
“If our state government will provide him full support, he will become world’s number one Wushu player,” he said.
Bhanu is currently world ranking number 2 Wushu player. He has won bronze medal for India in World Wushu Championship in 2015.
