Drew Chin demonstrates a stance
Drew Chin is, in many ways, your average Newton South student. He's working hard to earn a spot on the varsity wrestling team and this spring he hopes to advance from the junior varsity to varsity volleyball squad.
But this October he traveled to Zhengzhou, China to compete in the Second World Traditional Wushu Championships, and he came away with gold medals in the bare hand and broadsword kung fu competitions for his age group.
"I saw my competitors going through their drills and I thought they were very good. I didn't think I was going to do as well as I did," admitted Chin.
