Ku Chin-shui, Taiwanese aboriginal decathlon silver medalist of the 1990 Asian Games, is
still battling cancer after he was rumored by the media to have died of leukemia on Saturday, former Olympian medalist Chi Cheng said in a letter published on Sunday.
However, Chi, Hope Foundation Chairwoman, said that it can be foreseen his life is coming to an end.
When Ku was diagnosed with leukemia at the end of 2014, Chi visited him at the hospital and helped him transfer to another hospital for further treatment. Since then, Chi has paid much attention to Ku’s conditions and pleaded with the public to pray for his recovery.
After his incredible feats in the realm of track and field athletics, Ku was projected into the media spotlight again after a Uni Air flight on-board explosion incident in 1999 that implicated him and made his life miserable thereafter, Chi said in her letter. [FULL STORY]
