Cordillera’s most elite female wushu athlete, Divine Wally, helped power the Philippine Wushu Team to a decent finish in the 9th Sanda World Cup 2018 in China last week.

A former World Wushu Championship and Sanda World Cup gold medalist, Wally, 23, this time won bronze medal in the women’s 48-kilogram category.

“It is difficult to be fighting against the world’s elite female fighters but we still managed to win a medal for our country,” said Wally, who is also a gold medalist in the Asian Wushu Cup.

Wally, who has been representing Baguio and the Philippines in international tournaments, is also a bronze medalist in 2018 Asian Games in Indonesia.

At 20 then, Wally, an education student of the University of the Cordilleras, won two gold medals in world wushu combat events in a span of one year.  

She is the first female member of the Philippine Wushu Team to win in the World Wushu Championship in 2015 and 8th Sanda World Cup in 2016.

In September 2015, Wally won gold in the 9th Asian Wushu Championship.

The Philippine Wushu Team, meanwhile, was led by World Cup and Sanda World Cup gold medalist Arnel Mandal of Iloilo, who won gold in this year’s Sanda Cup in the 52-kg.

Incheon Asian Games bronze medalist Francisco Alo Solis won silver in the 56-kg, according to the Wushu Federation of the Philippine national chapter.

It was not immediately known if Philippine Wushu Team members Jean Claude Saclag and Hergie Bacyadan, both of Kalinga, competed in the China event.
