Lin Yu Ting, Pin Meng Chieh and Chen Nien Chin lead Chinese Taipei’s strong team at the AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships
The upcoming AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships will be held in New Delhi, India where plenty of Asian teams are planning to get medals including one of the most developed nations in female boxing, Chinese Taipei. Their stars as Lin Yu Ting, Pin Meng Chieh and Chen Nien Chin have got all of the potentials to get medals in New Delhi.
Chinese Taipei’s ladies could be a positive surprise at the AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships following their impressive results in the international stage. Chinese Taipei will be sending eight boxers from the light flyweight (48kg) up to the middleweight (75kg) to the AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships.
Chinese Taipei’s woman boxing team attended successfully in the Ho Chi Minh City 2017 ASBC Asian Confederation Women’s Boxing Championships one year ago and their stars proved their strong technique also in other events in 2018. The Shuchinsk International Women’s Tournament, the Ulaanbaatar Box Cup, the Kapolri Cup, the Asian Games and the FISU University World Boxing Championships were their stoppages during the road to the AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships.
Chinese Taipei won its first medal in the 2016 AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships which was a bronze claimed by Chen Nien Chin at the middleweight (75kg) in Astana. The 21-year-old Rio 2016 Olympian decided to move down this time and attend at the welterweight (69kg) where her powerful punches could be the way of her next success.
Chinese Taipei’s best hope in New Delhi could be the defending ASBC Asian Women’s Champion of the bantamweight (54kg) Lin Yu Ting who lost only one bout in the recent two years. The 23-year-old Lin was AIBA Women’s Youth World Champion in 2013 and she is planning to repeat that performance but this time among the elite boxers.
The most experienced member of their national team Pin Meng Chieh was quarter-finalist in the Jeju 2014 AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships. The 31-year-old boxer was competitive also for India’s star Chungneijang Mary Kom Hmangte in the recent events which showed her potential at the light flyweight (48kg).
Wu Shih Yi is the most developed young talent of Chinese Taipei’s national team who impressed at the Ho Chi Minh City 2017 ASBC Asian Confederation Women’s Boxing Championships in spite of her loss to a world class Chinese opponent. The 20-year-old lightweight (60kg) boxer used her height advantages at the Ulaanbaatar Box Cup this June and defeated more experienced rivals.
Yang Ya Chu earned bronze medal in the Guwahati 2017 AIBA Women’s Youth World Boxing Championships at the middleweight (75kg) and proved her strength one year ago. The 19-year-old talent joined to the elite level and the upcoming AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships will be a return to her to India and the debut among the bests.
Chinese Taipei’s travelling team to New Delhi still contains three further young boxers who have got already international experiences.
