In support of the IOC #StayStrong campaign, the Chinese Taipei Olympic Committee (CTOC) launched a social media event named “挺住(TING JHU)”, to promote sportsmanship to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. Meaning “Stay Strong”, “TING JHU” is a cheerful phrase to encourage all of humankind to confront difficulty, both mental and physical, and get through this time of uncertainty. In addition, the CTOC invited 83-year-old Olympian Wu A-Min, who competed in the decathlon at Tokyo 1964, to produce the calligraphy in person, as an encouraging message for the public. Athletes joined the event, including four-time shooting Olympian Lin Yi-Jun and two-time luge Olympian Lian De-An. Full details here.
