Wushu artist Agatha Wong bagged a bronze medal in the Wushu women's taijijian and taijiquan all-around competition in the 2018 Asian Games on Monday.

It was the Philippines' third medal -- all bronze -- overall in the Asiad.

The 20-year-old Wong scored 9.68 in the taijiquan on Sunday and another 9.68 in the taijijian event Monday for a total score of 19.36.

Winning gold was Lindwell Lindwell of Indonesia with 19.50 total score, while Mok Uen Ying earned the silver with a score of 19.42.

"I have no words because I just wanted this Asian Games to be an experience for me and it has been," Wong told ESPN5 after she received the medal at the awarding ceremony. "I'm really happy."

Wong also had an impressive outing in the 2017 Southeast Asian Games in Malaysia, securing a gold in the taijiquan event and a silver in the taijijian event.
