That is because Chiang Kai-Shek ran to Taiwan in 1949 after Mao and the commies gained the mainland.Well i guess it would help to know that up until 1971 Chinese Taipei was THE representative of China in United Nations. So if you called them chinese you wouldnt be wrong anyway
That is because Chiang Kai-Shek ran to Taiwan in 1949 after Mao and the commies gained the mainland.
Chiang proclaimed he was the rightful leader of China exiled to Taiwan and he eventually would retake China.
The majority of the Taiwanese didn’t want him there.
interesting historical lesson. i knew the kuomintang fleeing there but not the rest.
This has been a fantastic match, but I'm throwing in the towel. The first 2 days of this match were a great viewing experience and much of today has been as well. I think they've played 3 games in the last hour. I get it, they are playing for lots of cash and are both tightening up. I actually enjoy watching this near the end of long action matches, with the nip and tuck and grinding, but IMO they are just too many games away from the finish line for the current pace. They still have nearly 30 games left if it went hill hill. I just watched the US Open and with the 30 second shot clock, maybe I'm just spoiled. Nonetheless, both Chang and SVB has been an overall treat to watch. I hope it's a photo finish, but I'm not staying up till 5am in the morning to see it. For anyone with the time and doesn't have to work in the morning, enjoy!
