Taiwan’s tug-of-war teams on Saturday won three gold medals at this year’s TWIF World Indoor Championships in Helsingborg, Sweden, including a milestone triumph in the men’s 600kg division.

On the first day of the tourney’s first championship category, the women’s team defended their title in the 500kg division, while the country’s mixed team also won gold in the under-23 560kg division.

The men’s team followed up with the country’s first-ever title in the 600kg division.

The gold in the men’s 600kg division was one of the goals they set coming into the tournament this year, national Tug of War Association secretary-general Cho Yao-peng (卓耀鵬) said.

Referring to the 2026 TWIF World Indoor Championships, which are to be held in Taiwan, Cho said: “This gold boosts a lot the morale of Taiwan’s men’s tug-of-war teams, proving that Taiwan can perform as well in men’s events as in women’s.”

The feat came after club matches on the first two days of the event, in which Taiwanese teams finished with two golds in the women’s 540kg and U-23 mixed 560kg, as well as one bronze in the men’s 600kg.

Taiwan competed in six events of the championship category and were to vie for the title in the women’s 540kg, men’s 560kg and mixed 580kg yesterday, the last day of the tournament.

In other news, Taiwanese taekwondo athlete Su Po-ya (蘇柏亞) on Saturday won the gold in the women’s 53kg class after beating Mathilde Dumas of Canada at the Canada Open.

Su is to compete next at the US Open, which starts on Feb. 18.
