Taipei, July 8 (CNA) Taiwanese athletes were not expected to replicate their huge medal haul at the 2017 Universiade in Taipei, but they have so far done reasonably well at this year's Universiade in Italy and are currently ranked seventh in the medals table.

As of the end of the day Sunday, Taiwan has won four golds, five silver and three bronzes since the 2019 Summer Universiade in Naples opened on July 3.

Taiwanese taekwondo athlete Su Chia-en (蘇佳恩) grabbed a silver medal in the taekwondo women's individual poomsae Sunday — Taiwan's first medal in the sport this year — with a total score of 6.99.
