Tugging Taiwan

Turns out the new battle for honor in East Asia is women’s tug of war.  It’s pretty intense:

In Italy last year, the Chinese team protested loudly at the flag display, and then turned the flag around, according to Taiwan’s team.

Then came the political trash-talking.

“They would say, ‘you are a part of us,'” recalled Chen Li-hui, 26, a veteran of Taiwan’s national team since 2000.

Big mistake. Taiwan’s ladies didn’t take kindly to such provocation.

“We could have beat them very quickly,” said Chen. “But instead, we tortured them slowly before making them lose.”
