Jakarta (ANTARA) – The International Wushu Federation (IWUF) has again selected Indonesia as host of the World Junior Wushu Championship (WJWC) 2022 that is scheduled on
December 2-11, 2022.
The championship will take place at the Indonesia Convention Exhibition (ICE), BSD, Banten Province.
Executive Director of WJWC 2022 Gunawan Tjokro said the WJWC 2022 is the second time that Indonesia has been selected as host after having earlier hosted the international event in Bali in 2008.f the Competition was announced to promote traditional Chinese Martial Arts, propagate martial morality, and revive the true, divinely inspired traditional Chinese culture.
At a press conference here on Tuesday, Tjokro stated that Indonesia was selected as host due to the country’s wushu achievement at the international level.
“We (Indonesia) have also successfully held the same event before,” he added.
Tjokro affirmed that as the host, Indonesia has two targets: to achieve success in the implementation and in terms of achievement.
“We want every participant to come home with a sweet impression. Then, (we want) our athletes to also achieve success by winning medals,” he affirmed.
Tjokro remarked that 46 countries had officially registered until now. He expressed optimism that in 80 days to the WJWC 2022, the number would increase.
“With a relatively long time until implementation, we think many more countries will register. Our target is the event this time will break the record for the number of participants, namely 70 countries,” he added.
