Indonesian Wushu player, Edgar Xavier Marvelo, became a star for Indonesia on the third day of the 2019 SEA Games. The 21-year-old man won two gold in the wushu sport on Tuesday (3/12), which was held at the World Trade Center in Pasay, Metro Manila. The achievement of Edgar Xavier at the SEA Games in the Philippines is better than his achievements at the same event two years ago. In Malaysia, the wushu athlete born on December 16, 1998 won only 1 bronze in the men’s Changquan number.
Edgar Xavier’s first gold medal was captured from Daoshu / Gunshu Combined numbers. The 2018 Asian Games silver medalist won gold after collecting a total of 19.36 points. This point is the highest point above Jowen Lim Si Wei from Singapore and Trần Xuân Hiệp from Vietnam.
The second gold medal was won by Edgar with his colleagues in the men’s Duilian number. Together with Seraf Naro Siregar and Harris Horatius, Edgar outperformed the team from Brunei and the host of the Philippines. Previously, Haris Horatius had won two silver medals in the number Nanquan and Nandao / Nangun.
Edgar Xavier’s success was achieved when he was grieving. The reason is, his father, Lo Tjhiang Meng, died around 1:00 a.m. WIB in the morning. Through his Instagram account, Edgar presented the two gold medals to the late father who died a few hours before the final fight.
“Two gold medals, for daddy,” Edgar wrote through Instagram.
