IT IS MY LIFE’S WISH TO SPEAK UP FOR THOSE ATHLETES PARTICIPATING IN THE WINTER GAMES

TE-AN LIEN

Why I am running in the IOC Athletes’ Commission election

Providing a voice for those people who are involved in winter sports is my lifelong aspiration. The desire had been in my mind since I started my luge career. At that time, I discovered that studies and research on luge or winter sports in Taiwan had a tendency to be ignored due to the lack of popularity of those sports. The voice fighting for those athletes practicing those sports in Taiwan was usually quiet. Surprised at the injustice of “sport for all” based on the saying by Coubertin, I’ve made up my mind to make efforts to speak for them, striving to give a voice for these people who shouldn’t have been overlooked.
