I got asked a lot about how I got involved in curling and how I was able to join the Chinese Taipei Curling Team.
While in high school and college, I played all kinds of sports. My favorites are baseball and badminton. I played in the Medical College Baseball Team, and we won the champion of the NTU Cup (an intramural event at National Taiwan University) when I was a senior. Sometimes I thought I was born to play sports.
The first time I saw curling on TV was in Paris in 2000. I thought that looked like an interesting sport. So when I came to Madison in 2001 and a friend of mine introduced me the sport, I was eager to try. Guess what? I was totally hooked. During my first two seasons,I probably spent 4 nights a week on average at the Madison Curling Club. I started to play competitively in 2008, when I first represented Taiwan (Chinese Taipei) in the Pacific Curling Championships, later renamed as Pacific-Asia Curling Championships (PACC). While I took a break from curling between 2010-2013, I’ve been on the team since 2014. The season 2016-2017 was marked as a high point in my curling career as we made to the top 4 in PACC for the first time in team history.
In addition to competition and coaching duties, I am currently the Director of Media at the Chinese Taipei Curling Federation.
