Beijing 2008 Results Corrected for Chinese Taipei Weightlifters
On January 25, the Chinese Taipei Olympic Committee held an Olympic Medals Ceremony to celebrate the corrections for two medalists at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games – Ms. Chen Wei-ling and Ms. Lu Ying-chi.
Both athletes were awarded bronze medals in Beijing, but were upgraded at the end of 2017 following the several disqualifications for doping violations. Chen and Lu were presented with the medals by IOC Member Mr. C. K. Wu in accordance with the IOC protocol for Olympic medal ceremonies. Chen received the gold medal and Lu the silver for their weight categories.
The overall medal count for the Chinese Taipei delegation at the Beijing Olympics is now 5 gold, 7 silver and 20 bronze.
The event was witnessed by Mr. Te-Fu Lin, Director General of Sports Administration and Ministry of Education; Mr. Hong-Dow Lin, President of Chinese Taipei NOC; Ms. Jacqueline Yi-Ting Shen, Secretary General of Chinese Taipei NOC; and Ms. Hsia-Ling Tai, former Minister of Sports Affairs Council, the Executive Yuan.
