KUALA LUMPUR: MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek pledged RM200,000 to the Wushu Federation of Malaysia as a recogntion of their achievements in the Guangzhou Asian Games.

Chua said the federation were very motivated and organised, and that they should be provided with any resources they needed.

“My deputy has said there will be no problem in seeking sponsors to raise that amount,” he said during a dinner he hosted to honour the national wushu team yesterday.

Chua also promised a RM30,000 cash prize to wushu gold medallist Chai Fong Ying and RM10,000 to bronze medallist Tai Cheau Xuen. Chua’s deputy, Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai, said MCA was glad to assist the federation as wushu was not a heavily sponsored sport.

“We are pleased with their achievements and we are here to help,” said Liow.

Also present at the dinner were Wushu Federation of Malaysia president Datuk Seri Kee Yong Wee and other MCA leaders.

Kee said the federation hoped wushu could be promoted to all.

“Although Malaysia did not win any medals in the last Olympic Games, our first medal in the next Games may come from wushu,” he said.
