In the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, the Chinese women's volleyball team snatched victory from the jaws of defeat to win the championship. Chongqing player Yuan Xinyue is a member of the team. Now two years have passed, what can the girl born in 1996 achieve in the Asian Games is worth looking forward to.
Compared with the two celebrity athletes, the track and field athletes Bie Ge has no such publicity. However, the competitiveness is all about it. In the 33rd Jim Bush Track and Field held in Los Angeles in June this year, Bie Ge won the championship of men’s 200-meter race with a score of 20’39’’, who became the second Chinese athlete to beat the 20’40’’ mark following Xie Zhenye. The Chongqing-trained player is looking forward to showing his speed on a bigger stage.
Among the China delegation, in addition to the three athletes, Liu Ben, the coach of national diving team and Jiang Liang, the doctor of national boxing team are also from Chongqing. Liu Ben not only trained Shi Tingmao in the Chongqing team, but also coached the Olympic champions Chen Aisen and Lin Yue in the national team. He also won the FINA 2016 Best Coach. The national boxing team’s doctor Jiang Liang is also a Chongqing native who provides medical support for Chinese athletes. (Translated by Yang Lifu, Fathom Language Limited)
