Jones Inso notches bronze in Asiad wushu

Jones Inso secured a medal in his second appearance at the Asian Games, clinching the bronze in the men’s taijiquan-taijijian all-around event during the Wushu competitions held on Monday at the XSG Sports Centre in Hangzhou, China.

Inso earned an impressive total of 19.486 points, marking the country’s second medal at the Games after jin Patrick King Perez secured bronze in men’s individual poomsae.

This milestone followed the 26-year-old Wushu artist’s near miss at a medal during the 2023 SEA Games in Cambodia. His determination to bounce back was evident right from the morning’s taijiquan section.

Inso’s exceptional performance in the barehand form secured him second place, just behind the hometown favorite Gao Haonan, with scores of 9.746 and 9.830, respectively.

Hailing from La Trinidad, Benguet, Inso continued to impress with a substantial score of 9.740 in the taijijian, setting the standard early in the afternoon session as the second performer.

As drama and tension unfolded with subsequent athletes, Inso’s strong score ultimately secured him a place on the podium, with only three athletes surpassing it.

Gao added 9.836 to his morning tally to claim the gold with a total of 19.666. Meanwhile, Hong Kong’s Hui Tak Yan Samuel edged Inso into second place with a sum of 19.493.
