BAGUIO CITY – The country’s Summer Capital is gaining a well-deserved reputation as a haven for athletes especially those engaged in combat sports.
       Councilor Arthur Allad-iw has filed a resolution in the local legislature commending Divine Masadao Wally and her coach Tan Sui Tong “Tony” Candelaria for winning the gold medal in the 8th Sanda World Cup held last November 1 to 6 in Xian, China.
       A resident of Baguio who traces her roots in Sadanga and Tadian, Mountain Province, Wally also had a gold-winning performance at the 9th Asian Wushu Championships in Taoyuan, Taiwan last September 2 to 5.  
       Allad-iw said that Wally made history as the first Filipina to win gold in the 8th World Wushu Championships last year.
       “For leading the country to its best performance in the Wushu Tournament as members of the Philippine Wushu Team, their (Wally’s and Candelaria’s) feat brought pride and honor not only to their families but also to the country and city, as well.  They have put Baguio in the glare of publicity once more,” he added.

       The alderman chairs the city council’s committee on employment, livelihood and cooperatives and persons with disabilities.
