As people’s increasing interest for this sport, many Wushu associations have been set up in the countries of Asia, Europe, etc. Chinese Wushu has got the obvious features of being body-building and spirit-cleansing(净化精神), therefore it will improve the life quality of world people both physically and mentally. Furthermore, Wushu can also be considered a bridge to connect the eastern culture to the western one.
All stated above shows that Wushu is valuable and has been widespread enough to deserve the promotion as an event of the Olympics. It should be provided with a space in the field of the Olympics. Thank you for your listening.
