The championship served as a platform for young athletes to showcase their potential and compete at a national level. Applauding the efforts of the participants and organizers, Prof. (Dr.) Daud Iqbal Baba, Director of Sports at the University of Jammu, praised the athletes, calling them “messengers of peace.”

Manipur’s achievement at the 23rd Sub-Junior National Wushu Championships adds another feather to their cap, solidifying their reputation as a powerhouse in the Indian Wushu scene.
