Wu Yanan and her teamates compete in the women's four 500m kayak at the Guangzhou Asian Games on November 25, 2010.

Good news keeps pouring in for athletes from Anhui province as the 16th Asian Games is approaching its end.

On Thursday, athletes of Anhui origin bagged a gold, a silver and a bronze.

The gold went to Wu Yanan, who was born in Changfeng county, Anhui province. She and her teammates-Wang Feng, Ren Wenjun and Yu Lamei- won the women's four 500m kayak gold medal in 1:34.440, followed by Uzbekistan in 1:37.776 and Japan in 1:39.187.

"It was not easy at all for the quartet which had been formed just two months before the Asiad to win the glod, "Gao Beibei, coach of China's women kayak team said  in an interview after the match.

It is worthy of note that the four girls clocked a stunning 1:34.440, in contrast with their senior fellows' time of 1:37.418 at the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008.

"My motherland occurred to my mind the moment we won," the 26-year- old said. "I feel proud to be Chinese."

"Talented as she is, she works hard during practice," said Gao.

In addition, Hu Qing, a native of Lu'an city, Anhui province, took a silver in men's boxing in the 60kg category. Hu was the gold medalist at the 2006 Asian Games held in Doha.

Another homefellow, Tang Lingling, a new face of the Asiad, won the third place in women's karate competition.
