Chuang Chih-Yuan was crowned ITTF World Tour Grand Finals champion in 2002. The Chinese Taipei player comes from a table tennis orientated family; his father had previously been national doubles champion and his mother was a member of the national team.

Chuang made his debut for the Taiwanese national team in 1998 aged 17 and has his own table tennis stadium which was opened in 2008 in Kaohsiung (Taipei), which operates for his own training as well as the public.
