Hosts pocketed most victories at the 2010 University Worlds

The Chinese Taipei teams proved to be most successful at the 2nd FISU World University Championships with both their men’s and the women’s teams. The 2010 WUC was concluded at the Taiwan National College of Physical Education in the country’s 3rd largest city, Taichung. With the participation slightly marred by the global economic crisis and the density of the international calendar, the 2nd edition of the official FISU World Championships welcomed 10 nations with female and 14 nations with male athletes.
The IWF was represented at this event by its highest-ranking officials, with Dr. Tamás Aján, President being the main Guest of Honour and Executive members Maj.Gen. Yodbangtoey and Mr. Ong Poh Eng among the Technical Officials.
FISU Executive Committee Member and CISCA Chair Mr. Bayasgalan Danzandorj expressed full satisfaction and great praise for the Chinese Taipei University Federation and the local Organising Committee for the excellent organisation, the conditions and hospitality offered in Taichung. All present agreed that the atmosphere and the friendship among the teams and officials was also perfect and contributed to the co-operation and solidarity in the sport of weightlifting worldwide.
The traditional ELEIKO-IWF Press Commission Best Lifter Trophies were awarded to the absolute best woman – HSU Shu-Ching (TPE) – and man – ZIELINSKI Adrian (POL) – competitors.
