A trio of Chinese Taipei track and field athletes, Cheng Chao-tsun, Huang Shih-feng, and Chen Kuei-ru, headed off to the Tokyo Olympics with their coach, Hsueh Sheng-jung and Wang Kuo-hui, on July 29. Chinese Taipei Athletics Association President Yeh Chen-yen presented them with a special subsidy at the airport.

Yeh Chen-yen, President, Chinese Taipei Athletics Association:"With Cheng Chao-tsun and Huang Shih-feng, this is our best chance to medal in almost 60 years, since the era of Yang Chuan-kwang and Chi Cheng."
