The athletes were able to achieve these feats with the support of teachers, the encouragement of coaches and the cooperation of parents.

    Yang Ning, who has participated many times, won second place when she was just a seventh grader. She won gold medals two consecutive times last year and this year. Yang said it was especially stressful before games; fortunately she overcame all the obstacles she encountered during training and successfully repeated her performance as champion.

    Judo participants Chuantang Yuyen and Kao Yasheng were middling performers in the past. However, they both broke out and won gold medals this year, expressing gratitude for the coaches’ support and teammates’ encouragement.
