Kinmen Tug-of-War Team returns in glory! The slogan “fully concentrated on achieving excellence” can be heard loud and clear, and the “2016 National Indoor Tug-of-War Contest” held by the Sports Administration for schools of all levels was successfully completed in the stadium of National Taiwan Sport University, in which Jinhu Elementary School won second place in the mixed division; team members returned to Kinmen by plane yesterday and were warmly welcomed by the school and their parents.
Director-General Li Wen-Liang of the Education Department said that a total of 101 teams entered the contest this year, and 213 matches were completed over two days. Classes forming teams to compete are especially meaningful to the promotion of tug-of-war in schools. Teams in Kinmen County included Jinsha Elementary School, Jinhu Elementary School, junior high school division of Jinning Elementary & Junior High School, and Jinsha Junior High School, and the winning team represented Kinmen in the National Indoor Tug-of-War Contest. Jinhu Elementary School won second place in the elementary school mixed division and number one in the teamwork award; Jinsha Elementary School won fourth place in the elementary school boys division; and Jinsha Junior High School won sixth in the junior high school girls division.
Principal Chen Wei-Hsin thanked the coach and parents for their support, allowing members of the tug-of-war team to focus on training, which made it possible for Jinhu Elementary School to win second place in the mixed division. He also hoped that with the experience of this contest, when the students move on to junior high school or continue to compete next year, they will win an even greater achievement for Kinmen, and make tug-of-war the pride of Jinhu Elementary School.
