2024 IWF Asian Championships: Chen Wen-Huei Won the Silver Medal For the Women’s 71 kg Event

The fifth competition day at the 2024 IWF Asian Championships was great for Taiwan as they managed to win their seventh silver medal in the women’s 71 kg event. 

Chen Wen-Huei delivered an outstanding performance and managed to improve on the bronze medal that she won at last year’s Asian Championships by standing on the second podium spot.

To get there, she first lifted 108 kg in the snatch on her third attempt and 128 kg on the Clean&Jerk for a total of 236 kg, just five kg more than bronze medalist Mun Minhee and a whooping 33 kg less than first-placed Song Kuk Hyang. With that said, this was a fantastic result for Team Taiwan, who are already in third place for total medals, just behind Indonesia and Thailand. 

When it comes to Chen Wen-Huei’s career, her biggest success came when she was competing in the 64 kg division, where she managed to win a silver medal at the World Championships in 2021 and a bronze medal at the Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo.

Since then, she has moved up a category and is now competing at the 71 kg category, where her biggest success has come at the Asian Championships with one bronze and now one silver medal.
