TAN Cheong Min picked up her second medal in the Wushu World Championships in Kazan, Russia on Monday.

The Malacca-born impressed the judges with her grace and movements on the mat to earn 9.61 points for the silver medal in the women's nandao (Southern Broadsword) discipline.

Hong Kong's He Jianxin topped the event with a 9.64 total while Indonesia's Juwita Niza Wasni finished third on 9.58.

On Sunday, Cheong Min, 18, won a bronze in the women's nangun (southern style).

"I trained very hard for the world meet. A second podium finish is a great achievement.

"It is a good motivational factor for upcoming meets," said Cheong Min in Russia on Tuesday.

Cheong Min, who won a gold medal in last year' World Junior Championships in Bulgaria, was not selected for the Kuala Lumpur Sea Games in August.

Instead, she was sent for the World University Games in Taiwan where she won a silver medal.

Malaysia have now recorded a haul of one gold, two silver and two bronze at the world meet.
