Chen Yu-chen is first Keelung boxer to join national team

Chen Yu-chen is first Keelung boxer to join national team

2024-03-28

An 18-year-old boxer has just become the first from Keelung to make the national team. Chen Yu-chen will represent Taiwan in a contest in Kazakhstan next month. The high schooler lands more than 4,000 punches in training each day. His journey to represent Taiwan has not been plain sailing, with several ups and downs over the last few years. But his coach is confident that the young athlete has loads more potential to show off.

Gloves on, and it’s time to focus on landing a good punch. This vigorous training leaves no time for sloppiness.

Chen Yu-chen is a high school boxer from Keelung. He’s just won gold at a national selection tournament, becoming the first boxer from Keelung to join the national boxing team.

Chen started boxing just to kill time. Gradually, he fell in love with it and started to apply himself more and more. He’s gone from bluster to solid skills, but the path of boxing is not an easy one.

Li Yin
Coach
After seven months, he won his first medal at the National Middle School Athletic Games. Then when he was a high school sophomore, there were loads of strange… I guess you would say, setbacks. He lost lots of matches just by a tiny margin. He was always losing 3:2.

In his first year at high school, Chen got a new coach, Li Yin, who’s a former national team boxer himself. To use up his immense reserves of energy, the two went jogging together, boxed, and gradually unearthed Chen’s extraordinary talent. He won bronze at the National Middle School Athletic Games that year. The next year he lost out, but recommitted to his training and came back stronger in the third year. Now he’s won gold in the national trials.

Chen ends each day of training with a few bruises, and has injured his hand several times. Once he even had to see a doctor for a head concussion. But with occasional rehabilitation treatment, he keeps going. He won’t give up easily.

Voice of Chen Yu-chen
Boxer
I don’t think I have any special feelings about getting onto the national team. But I think what’s more meaningful for me is maybe being able to help Keelung.

Chen will travel to Kazakhstan to compete in his first international engagement in April. He hopes to win glory for Keelung as well as Taiwan, through the simple method of just his fists.

練到腦震盪也不放棄! 18歲陳昱辰成"基隆首位金牌國手"

2024-03-28

剛滿18歲的基隆高中高三生陳昱辰,日前在國手選拔賽獲得金牌,成為基隆市第一個拳擊國手,更有機會成為體壇的明日之星,只是當初為了練習,每天打超過4000下沙包,還一度練到腦震盪,甚至一度想要放棄,最後在指導教練的鼓勵下,咬牙苦撐,才練就一身的好拳技!

帶起拳擊手套,眼神堅定向前揮拳,拳拳到位,刻苦練習絕不馬虎。

他是來自基隆高中的拳擊選手"陳昱辰",日前在全國選拔賽獲得金牌,成為基隆市第一個拳擊國手。

陳昱辰起初是無聊,才開始打拳,之後漸漸愛上拳擊投入心力,從花拳繡腿到拳擊國手,只是他的拳擊之路其實並不順利。

[[指導教練 李胤]]
“練七個月,就得到基隆的全中運的第一面獎牌,然後後面來到高二的時候,就是發生很多的奇怪的,應該說是對他來說,就是一大堆挫折啦,因為他就比賽就是些微差距輸,永遠的三比二”

升上高一時,陳昱辰遇到了過去是拳擊選手的輔導老師李胤,為了消耗他過人的體力,從一起跑步、練拳,慢慢發現陳昱辰的拳擊天賦,當年就拿下全中運的銅牌,儘管隔年失利,咬牙苦練,到了高三重振旗鼓,在國手選拔賽獲得金牌。

陳昱辰每天練拳練到全身是傷,甚至有好幾次手受傷、頭部腦震盪去看醫生,不時得到醫院復健,但他不輕言放棄,奮力揮出每一拳。

[[聲音來源:拳擊國手 陳昱辰]]
“拿到國手的心情,其實我覺得沒有什麼特別的心情,但是我覺得就是,比較對我來說比較有意義的,應該是就是可以幫助到基隆”

陳昱辰4月將要到哈薩克參加國際賽,期望用自己的雙手,為基隆為台灣爭取榮耀,成為台灣之光。
