History was made at the 2015 World Wushu Championships when Elizabeth Lim won Australia’s first ‘World Wushu Championships’ Gold Medal.

“Elizabeth Lim has work tremendously hard. She started competing for Australia since 2007 and has improved at every Championships since then. This occasion, on her 5th time she represented Australia, she finally became World Champion, despite carrying a meniscus tear injury in her left knee going into the Championships. I am very proud of her”

KEE LEE TAN – Head Taolu Coach Australian Team 2015 World Wushu Championship

“On behalf of Kung Fu Wushu Australia and the broader Chinese martial arts community I extend our sincere congratulations and thanks to Elizabeth Lim who has won Australia’s first gold medal at the World Wushu Championships. In doing this Elizabeth has achieved much at a personal level but equally she has established herself as an ambassador for kung fu/.wushu in Australia. Her manner, humility and grace compliments her amazing technical ability. Well Done!”

“Best results ever for Australia so far. Finally we have a World Champion. A tribute to the continual development of wushu kungfu in Australia”

“For me personally it was the best team atmosphere I have be engaged with in my 7 year’s as Head Coach. The quality of the competition was second to none which is to be expected at a World event.

All the Australian Sanda fighters should hold their heads high as they gave their best and competed with spirit and determination. I was very proud of their efforts as all of Australia should be.

I thought Australia had been unlucky in the fact that we had drawn some of the top Sanda Countries in the world for our first rounds (China, Russia, and Vietnam). And for Australia to come away with our first ever medal for Sanda at a World Wushu Championship (Bronze to John Bennett) it was very special to be apart of”.

“A great step forward for Australia, this event was a turning point as Australia really started to get noticed. Our thanks goes to the athletes, officials and coaches who give so selflessly their time, experience and hard work – well done everyone!”
