华裔扬威世界少年武术赛 获加拿大万锦市长嘉许

加拿大居住于万锦市的两名华裔少年武术运动员林浩然(RexLam)和李嘉怡(EricaLi),代表加拿大参加第4届世界少年武术大赛,并且取得佳绩。他们被邀请于9月30日前往万锦市市政厅,接受市长薛家平的嘉许,表扬他们为加国争光。

该个世界少年武术大赛被誉为武术界的盛事,来自加国代表队的成员林浩然,在C组男子少年棍术的激烈比赛,以9.30高分勇夺银牌,与冠军得主相差0.01分;李嘉怡在C组女子棍术比赛中,以9.20高分夺得第五名。

由于他们年纪轻轻在国际大赛中为加拿大争取殊荣,加上他们同样居住在万锦市,所以获得市府邀请,接受市长的特别嘉许。两位少年运动员对此表示感到兴奋,能够得到政府的表扬,从中获得鼓励,过去的努力也是值得。

两人均是李文启武术学院学员。现年12岁的林浩然,自6岁开始跟随李师傅习武,自2009年首次参加省级锦标赛赢取2个金牌后,在省级及全国赛事中表现出色,去年不仅获选成为加国代表队参加世界大赛,更取得彪炳成续。

9岁的李嘉怡随父亲及李师傅习武4年。早在2010年竞逐全国锦标赛时已表现出色,虽然该次未能入选国家队出外参加世界赛事,但她没有放弃,反而努力练习,更与年长的学员一起受训,提升个人武术水平。去年同样获选为国家队,代表加拿大参赛,成绩不俗。

除上述两名少年获奖外,该武术学校另有2名学员也入选加拿大代表队参赛。现年15岁的黄伟(NimaRahnema)在B组男子剑术比赛中,以9.27分夺取铜牌。13岁的TerenceTran参加2010年世界大赛,在C组男子少年长拳比赛,当时共有44名运动员角逐,他以9.56分勇夺银牌,仅以0.02分之微稍逊于冠军。他们两人先后获得烈治文山市府嘉许,并颁发纪念状作为鼓励。
