As of press time, Taiwan has received five golds, nine silvers and five bronzes, a total of 19 medals for the 2019 Summer Universiade in Naples, Italy. Some of the athletes have come home from Italy to a hero's welcome.
Taiwan's Pommel Horse Prince Lee Chih-kai and Gymnastic Prince Tang Chia-hung were photographed by the press at Taoyuan International Airport wearing their medals won at the 2019 Universiade. The gymnastic team has made the team's history with a total of 2 gold, 1 silver, and 1 bronze.
I have achieved my goal, which is to win the pommel horse gold medal. I'm thrilled to have won twice in a roll. The next goal will probably be the Olympics in Tokyo. I will fight for the chance to be in the Olympics during the World Championships.
With a perfect landing, Tang Chia-hung has won Taiwan's first Universiade gold medal on high bar.
The National Taiwan Normal University and Teacher Wong have given me a lot of instructions so I can perform harder routines in the final round instead of simpler ones. With the experiences from previous competitions and finishing up with this one, it makes me very happy.
The shooting team has also excelled in the Universiade with 3 gold, 2 silver, and 1 bronze. Liu Wan-yu and Yang Kun-pi who won the gold medals in the trap shooting event, said the medals were hard come by.
It is a bit exhausting to ride in the car for 1.5 hours everyday just to get to the shooting range. But it's because of this, we tend to grasp the moment and do our best. It's sort of an inspiration for us.
It was strenuous to sit in the car for so long and only had two days of practice. I had to adapt and adjust to the best I can be.
Kuo Kuan-ting and Yu Ai-wen have won the 10 meter mixed air pistol gold medal at the 2019 Summer Universiade. As of July 10th, the Taiwanese team have won a total of 19 medals with 5 gold, 9 silver, and 5 bronze.
