This year’s National Intercollegiate Athletic Games concluded with NTU athletes taking home a total of 19 gold, 21 silver, and 20 bronze medals. More than 400 athletes competing in 10 categories represented the University in the annual event, which was held between May 2-6 at Fu Jen Catholic University.

Our total of 60 medal counts placed us at No. 5 as the only university without an Athletics Department to make it into the top rankings.

Suzuki Haruna landing 4 gold medals in the Team, All-round, and individual event categories.

Public Health major Yu-Ping Huang (黃諭憑), meanwhile, broke the game’s 100 and 200 meter men’s breaststroke records. Huang was also responsible for half of the swimming team’s 8 gold medals this year. In addition, the swimming varsity broke the intercollegiate records of the 200 meter women’s butterfly and 400 meter men’s individual medley.

One of the highlights of this year’s event was when law student Hsuan-Ren Chen (陳宣任) broke his own intercollegiate 800-meter run record at 1:52.50. This was Chen’s second consecutive win of the category.

Good news also emerged from the taekwondo, tennis, and fencing events. In total, the NTU swimming team won 8 golds, 14 silvers, and 7 bronzes. The gymnastics club wrapped up 5 golds, 1 silver, and 2 bronzes, while the taekwondo team took home 2 golds, 1 silver, and 1 bronze. Both the fencing and tennis teams were able to secure at least 1 gold medal.
