Chinese Taipei (Chinese: 中華臺北; pinyin: Zhōnghuá Táibĕi) did not send a team again to the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Since 1984, athletes from Taiwan have competed at the Olympics as "Chinese Taipei", not as Taiwan nor as the Republic of China (ROC), due to opposition from the People's Republic of China.[1] Chinese Taipei's only Winter Olympic athlete, Ma Chih-hung, competed in men's luge. He successfully completed all four runs, placing 34th overall.
