London 2012 Olympics: Taiwan – Report An Olympic Land: 1960-2012

By the beggining of the 1960s, Taiwan produced a great champion in a time when the island –shapped like a tobacco leaf-was just one of the poverty-stricken countries on the Planet (with per capita GDP equal to most of Africa’s black republics) and also among Asia’s most unstable nations. His name: Yang Chuan-kwang. By 1963, he was focus of the attention of the world press: he was one of the first individuals from Asia to establish a world record with 8,089 points in the men’s decathlon, breaking the stereotypes of what makes a great decathlete. Throughout most of his athletic career, he set several international records, but he reached his peak as Chinese-Taipei’s decathlon champion when, on September 6, 1960, he won his nation’s first Olympian medal, after an epic showdown with America’s Rafer Johnson.
