A 37-member team from Taiwan claimed 92 medals including 37 golds Sunday at the 2011 World Police and Fire Games, three medals up on last year's haul, despite having seven fewer members.
The Taiwanese team performed especially well in the rifle section, grabbing 11 golds, five silvers and five bronzes in the individual event and 12 golds and four silvers in the team category, said National Police Agency Deputy Director-General Lin Kuo-tung.
Liu Cheng-ming, who came away with the most medals in the games for the Taiwanese team, secured two golds and two silvers in the small-bore rifle section and took two golds in the large-bore rifle event.
Lin said the friendly competition between nations helps prompt police officers and firefighters to stay in shape and bonds the forces, as well as promoting Taiwan's international image.
Although the team from Taiwan was registered under the name of Chinese Taipei, the Republic of China flag made an appearance many times at the event, Lin added.
