Wu, the first gold medalist for China's taekwondo in the Asian Games in 2006 and the world champion in 2007, has become a defender from a challenger in the event.

China named 639 athletes to contest 38 disciplines of all 28 sports for the Beijing Olympics in a low-profile ceremony last Friday.

Those uprising stars among the Chinese delegation attracted much attention as they are also medalist hopefuls in this Olympics.
