Wu Tai-Hao (Chinese: 吳岱豪; born February 7, 1985 in Taoyuan County (now Taoyuan City), Taiwan) is a Taiwanese basketball player.

Wu plays centre for the Chinese Taipei men's national basketball team, as well as for his Taiwanese club teams, but had adjusted to play forward while competing in the Pacific West Conference, a Division II league of the NCAA, as a member of the Brigham Young University–Hawaii varsity team. As a starter, he averaged 24.6 minutes, 10.7 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks per game in the 2006-2007 season.

After his brief college basketball career in the United States, Wu returned to Taiwan to play in the Super Basketball League where he won a shot-block champion title and helped the Taiwan Beer club team to its second championship in 2008.

Averaging 6.9 points and 3.7 rebounds per game, Wu helped the Chinese Taipei national team to an improved fifth place finish at the FIBA Asia Championship 2009.[1]
