Ever since she was 12, Meng-Shin Lin wanted to become the world champion in sport stacking. She would practice stacking the cups until her hands were injured, so that one day she may make her parents proud. At the age of 16, Meng-Shin became the first Taiwanese to snatch the gold medal in the 2013 World Sport Stacking Championship. She brought home the title that has made the hours of daily practices worthwhile.

In 2013, Meng-Shin and Kuma Films traveled around Taiwan to record a film on sport stacking. The video proved to be very popular, as it garnered over 100,000 views on YouTube, and was later featured in the 2013 Word Sport Stacking Championship. Meng-Shin became the ambassador for Taiwan’s sport stacking team; The film enabled her to introduce Taiwan to hundreds of sport stackers around the world, but also to introduce sport stacking to the people of Taiwan.

Meng-Shin believes that no one but her alone can help her decide her fate. She will continue to pursue things that fascinate her, no matter how strange or obscure such interests are. She knows that with hard work and dedication, her efforts can help make Taiwan shine.
