Taiwan participated in the games under protest
C. K. Yang did not disappoint the expectations of the audience in his decathlon to collect 8, 344 points to break Olympic records and received a silver medal, thus beginning Taiwan's Olympic medal record. A film was made of the Rome Olympics and shown everywhere in the world. The movie includes the 1,500 meter run, the last event of the track and field competition, with an impressive shot of the American athlete Johnson and C. K. Yang vying for the gold.

2003: Bush Team Split on China, but Realists Hold the Reins
Data Dump from 2003
what is your policy on china and Taiwan?
Kucinich = jobs,
Clark = comment in fortune
Sharpton = ?
Braun = ?
Kerry = strategic importance
Dean = ?
American presidential candidates bash China while on the campaign (think Clinton in '92 and Bush in 2000, for recent examples) yet once elected President must engage the Beijing government for strategic political and economic purposes. The cornerstone of US policy towards China is the recognition of the "one China" principle. Yet the US is also bound by the Taiwan Defense Act to protect the fledgling democracy on Taiwan. This contradiction inevitably leads to very dangerous confrontations over Taiwan for each new administration. As President what will you do to disentangle the US from the China-Taiwan knot?
Since Harry Truman every president has had an inconsistent policy on China that inevitably leads to potentially dangerous confrontations over Taiwan. As president what will you do to disentangle the US from the China-Taiwan knot?
to maintain a delicate balance between Congressional supporters of Taiwan, the Executive's realistic assessment of the need for good relations with Beijing, and popular distrust of the regime on mainland China.
