Former Sports Official Blasted for Emotional Blackmail of TY Tai 戴遐齡盼小戴再戰巴黎奧運 網友:情緒勒索

Former Sports Affairs Council Minister Tai Hsia-ling recently launched a petition, in which she calls on Tai Tzu-ying to commit to the next Olympic Games. Netizens immediately blasted Tai Hsia-ling for "emotional blackmail." 


Tai Tzu-ying brought home a silver medal from her third Olympics. She has not yet said whether she plans to compete again in 2024. Former Sports Affairs Minister Tai Hsia-ling recently called on Tai Tzu-ying to commit to the 2024 Olympics, leading netizens to blast Tai Hsia-ling for "emotional blackmail" and not respecting Tai Tzu-ying's wishes.

Tai Hsia-ling, Former Sports Affairs Minister:”This was in no way so-called emotional blackmail. We just went this route to encourage her to compete (in the 2024 Olympics). We will support her decision no matter what she decides.” 

While many municipal governments offered medal bonuses for athletes during this year's Olympics, the cultivation of athletes is not an overnight process. Ultramarathon runner Kevin Lin says athletes compete for the love of the game rather than money, and what they need are guarantees for their post-retirement life.

Kevin Lin, Ultramarathon Runner:” [Athletes] don't enter competitions for the money, so larger medal bonuses don't help. Athletes, training partners and coaches are important assets, but are they really anything more than temp workers? This is so wrong, in my opinion.”

Yu Chong-long, National Chung Hsing University Professor:”For sports sponsorships to make a long-term difference, you have to have a two-pronged approach: one being sponsorships, and the other being charity. Sponsorships are an exchange, and you have to pay attention to the connection (between corporate sponsors and athletes).”

Breakdancing will be one of the new sports introduced at the 2024 Olympics. Chinese Taipei DanceSport Federation Chair Sean Lien says he will not be competing in Paris but he hopes the government can take an active role in the development of breakdancing and provide young breakdancers with resources.

 

 

三度征戰奧運,羽球選手戴資穎終於站上頒獎台,為自己也為台灣拿下銀牌,在世界排名也第一,未來是否再戰2024巴黎奧運,本人還沒鬆口,但前體委會主委戴遐齡日前,卻先在個人臉書喊話連署,希望戴資穎再拼下屆奧運,引發網友批評,不但不尊重個人意願,還情緒勒索,她出面反駁。
 

前行政院體委會主任委員戴遐齡:「絕對沒有所謂的情緒勒索的這件事情。我們希望透過這樣來鼓勵她,希望她來參賽(2024巴黎奧運)。至於她要不要繼續參賽,我們絕對高度的支持她的決定。」
東京奧運順利落幕,回顧台灣選手表現,頻頻創新紀錄,各地方政府接連表態加碼獎金,但選手養成並非一朝一夕,知名超馬選手林義傑認為,選手不是因為錢才去比賽,更需要未來的保障,尤其是退下運動國手的角色之後,也必須被重視。
 

知名超馬選手 林義傑:「他不是因為錢,去當一個運動員比賽,所以我們再去提高獎金都沒有用。希望運動員跟陪練員跟教練,他們明明是重要資產,可是他們淪為臨時的打工仔我個人覺得是完全不對的。」
 

中興大學教授兼運動與健康管理所長余宗龍:「這個運動贊助要走得可長可久,我們想兩個字。一個字叫贊助,另外一個字叫施捨,贊助是交換交換很重要的一點,就是要重視(企業與選手)連結。
 

2024巴黎奧運確定列入霹靂舞項目,長期推廣霹靂舞,也是中華民國霹靂舞協會理事長的連勝文,也曾秀過舞技,外界好奇他是否可能征戰奧運,他笑稱,除非奧運有中老年組,否則不太可能參加,同時表示,現在應該要關注的是,如何有資源提供給年輕選手,呼籲政府重視霹靂舞的發展。
