Taipei, Aug. 26 (CNA) The Swedish coach of Taipei Universiade javelin gold medalist Cheng Chao-tsun (鄭兆村) of Taiwan said Saturday he did not do much to help Cheng except finding the key for him to unleash his vast potential.

Cheng set an Asian record by throwing 91.36 meters to earn Taiwan’s second gold in athletics in the on-going Summer University Games, thrilling not just his home audience but also his closest rival, Germany’s Andreas Hofmann, who used “it’s crazy” to comment on Cheng’s last shocking throw that surpassed his remarkable 91.07m final attempt.

During a press conference after the event, Cheng was asked how he managed to get back to the field so soon after an injury. He said he didn’t know either, “ask my coach.”
