MALAYSIA GAMES:Youngest member of Negri squad
His hero was third brother Chun Wai who represented Negri Sembilan in many tournaments.
Chun Wai also brought home a silver medal in Nan Dao (sword) from the 2008 Malaysia Games in Terengganu.
This year, Chun Ming, at 14, is the youngest member of Negri's six-male and six-female member team gearing up for the Malaysia Games in Pahang in July.
The SMJK Chan Wa student is no stranger to success as he has been prolifically winning medals for the past three years.
He won gold medals in the boys' Under-12 Nan Quan, Dao Shu and Gun Shu in the state schools meet in 2009.
Then in 2010, as a Year Six pupil of SJKC Pei Hua, he repeated his feat in the same events in the national junior meet in Seremban.
At the end of that year, he joined Chun Wai to compete in the 11th Chin Woo World Championships in Shanghai, China.
Chun Wai won gold medals in the boys' Under-18 Nan Gun (staff) and traditional long weapon events.
On the other hand, Chun Ming won the boys' Under-12 gold in Gun Shu (long stick) and the silver in the traditional long weapon discipline.
Last year, Chun Ming emerged as the Chang Quan (free hand) champion in the boys' Under-15 event at the national junior meet in Kuala Lumpur and grabbed a silver in Dao Shu at the Malaysian Open in Ipoh.
The wushu wonderboy trains under coach Lee Chin Chee at the Negri Sembilan Chin Woo Athletic Association (NSCWAA) hall in Seremban five times a week from 7.30pm to 10pm.
Standing at only 1.5m and weighing 37kg, Chun Ming attributes his success to his supportive parents, who follow him whenever he competes in any state in Malaysia.
The humble boy said: "My brother Chun Wai has instilled discipline and good values in me and this has made me a champion exponent.
"In addition, I learn a lot from watching videos of China's top exponents in action on YouTube.
"I always try my best to balance my studies in school with long hours of wushu training. I want to be a scientist when I grow up."
Coach Lee Chin Chee said: "Chun Ming is talented, quick in picking up skills and attends training regularly.
"He is expected to bring home medals of any colours in Dao Shu and Gun Shu from the Malaysia Games in Pahang."
