12th World Chin Woo Tournament & Festival – Tianjin

Chin Woo New Zealand wishes to congratulate the NZ athletes who attended the recent 12th World Chin Woo Tournament & Festival held in Tianjin, China from 26th to 31st October, bringing home 3 Gold, 5 Silver & 1 Bronze medals among the 6 athletes.

The New Zealand team was almost unable to participate at this tournament owing to the postponement of the event by 8 days, with notification reaching us only 3 weeks out from the original date. However, with much patience and determination from the NZ side, the team of 12 successfully attended this biennial international event.

The Chin Woo New Zealand team comprised of Mr. Kenneth Liu (Patron & Life President), Mr. Jack Chan (Vice-Chairman), Mr. George Guo (Chief Coach), 6 Athletes – Ngaroma Buchanan, Rangiatea Buchanan, Jenny Ling, Tessa Ewens, Nick Ewens & Helen Cheng, with 3 Supporters – Derek Buchanan, Tanja Blinkhorn & Ben Ewens.
