The 2022 WorldSkills Competition has started since September 17. Taiwan sent 57 competitors to join 50 different skills competitions. At the first competition in Bern, Switzerland, Lei Feng-Yue, a student from Taiwan Tech, participated as a prototype modeling competitor and won the first gold medal for Taiwan. President Tsai Ing-wen and Vice President Lai Ching-te recognized his achievement with congratulatory messages.
From the preliminary round, Lei Feng-yue has spent three years improving himself until the international competition. He overcame all the mental pressure, and finally succeeded in the competition. At the awards ceremony, his joy is beyond words. “I am very surprised, I thought I didn't stand a chance against them,” Lei responded to the press. The humble winner also thanked Wang Xi-quan, the judge, and the professors for their guidance and trust in him. “Thanks to all the people I met, I achieved my goal. I feel proud and thankful.”
Lei has taken part in Taiwan’s National Skills Competition for 4 times. His experience and performance are both impressive as a competitor. Now, he is a 23-year-old student at Taiwan Tech. He switched his path from general machinery and industrial machinery maintenance to prototype modeling because of his love for Gundam and war tanks models. Designing, modeling and turning creativity into reality are his specialty and his passion.
The Ministry of Labor's Workforce Development Agency (WDA) announced Lei’s achievement and the recognition from the world for the vocational potential of Taiwan. WDA stated that all the competitors have opportunities to endeavor and show the world what they are capable of. They will always support the competitors and provide them with the training environment and the resources to cultivate elites and to strengthen Taiwan’s skills in every field. For the 2022 WorldSkills Competition, more competitions are ahead, with the first victory, let’s wish all the competitors lots of luck to win more medals for Taiwan!
