In 2016 at the age of 19 Wu won the first Asian Games taekwondo gold medal for China in Doha, Qatar. 2 years later at the Beijing Olympics, Wu secured her first Olympic title and reserved it in London in 2012.
However, on her journey to the third straight champion in Rio de Janeiro in 2016, Wu endured the biggest loss in her career.
