Rio de Janeiro, Sept. 16 (CNA) The Taiwanese table tennis duo won the silver medal in the men's team table tennis event at the Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro after being defeated by South Korea 1-2 Friday.

In the first round of the men's team - class 4-5 gold medal match, the Taiwanese team lost in the doubles phase to South Korea 1-3.

Taiwan's Cheng Ming-chih then won a singles match in the second round of team competition 3-1 (11:8, 11:7, 9:11, 11:5), while Lin Yen-hung lost in the third round in the other singles match 0-3 (7:11, 7:11, 3:11).

Cheng said after the matches that this was his first time to take part in the Paralympic Games, and he was only hoping to win a medal and had not expected to enter the finals.

He said that he was very happy to take the silver, noting that he hopes to compete in the Asian Para Games in Indonesia in 2018 and in 2020 Paralympics in Tokyo.

Cheng was selected as a national table tennis player when he was an teenager, but he had his legs amputated five years ago after a car accident. He only picked up the Paralympic sport after being encouraged by his friends and family members.
