Taipei, Sept. 9 (CNA) Taiwanese athletes succumbed Sunday to South Africa to take the silver medal at the 2019 World U23 and Junior Outdoor Tug Of War Championships held in Ireland.

The tournament consisted of two events — the Outdoor Open Club Championships and the World Championships — both of which took place at Castlebar in the west of Ireland Sept. 5-8.

The tug of war team, comprised of students from Taoyuan Municipal Shou Shan Senior High School and Taipei Jingmei Girls High School, took silver in the junior mixed 520-kilogram category.

Huang Yung-wang (黃永旺), vice chairman of the Chinese Taipei Tug of War Association, said the team could have won gold if some of its main players had not been out on the injured list.
