NSYSU President Ying-Yao Cheng had also immediately called Yan-Cheng Chen to congratulate him, expressing that Yan-Cheng Chen is not only the pride of NSYSU but also the pride of Taiwan.

Roller Sports made the game category for the first time in the 29th Summer Universiade; Yan-Cheng Chen snatched the first Gold on record and this is especially meaningful as the game is held in his home country, Taiwan. “I knew that the game had no Gold record yet, and we were also playing the first game. I imagined myself getting the gold. After I really got the gold, I felt all the hard work, all the pain and tears endured through training had paid off,” said Yan-Cheng Chen.

Near a thousand Taiwanese spectators went to cheer at the game. Yan-Cheng Chen indicated that the spectators were essential; he wanted to show his best to them. After the starting pistol, he transformed the excitement to the drive to win, telling himself to concentrate on the game.

Yan-Cheng Chen did everything he can to win. Yi-Ting Pan, the Nutrition Researcher at the Sport Science Division of National Sport Training Center mentioned that Yan-Cheng Chen has been under nutrient control and food ratio adjustment since March. Yan-Cheng Chen has successfully decreased his weight from 65.2kg to about 62-63kg. His body fat also decreased by 5%. This gave his body more power and became the key to his win.

Ying-Chu Chen, who is also a NSYSU Department of Business Administration senior student, has also demonstrated outstanding performance in the 29th Summer Universiade. She has won the gold in Women's 500 meter Sprint (Roller Sport) with 43.739 seconds.
