Paris, Aug. 11 (CNA) Taiwan grabbed a total of 18 medals, including 10 gold, at the 2018 Gay Games that concluded in Paris on Saturday.
Chi Chia-wei (祁家威), a veteran gay rights activist and honorary team leader for Taiwan at the games, said the results, which also included five silver and three bronze medals, were better than expected.
Chi said he felt honored to be in Paris to cheer for Taiwanese athletes.
Taiwan has a chance to bid for the games host city in 2026, he said, with the vote to take place at an annual general meeting of the Federation of Gay Games in 2021.
Chi hoped that another Asian country can host the games after Hong Kong serves as host in 2022, he said. [FULL STORY]
