Its my lucky life that a persons growth can keep pace with the progress and development of the country.
Forty years ago, I became a member of the Chinese Womens Volleyball Team with honor. Together with Chinas reform and opening up, we took a solid step and worked hard for Chinas three big balls to rush out of Asia and go to the world.
In 1981, for the first time, we stood on the podium of world champion on behalf of our motherland. Driven by a strong sense of national honor and mission, the Chinese womens volleyball team overcame many difficulties and withstood the pressure of jacks in the following years, creating the first five consecutive championships in the history of world volleyball. The spirit of womens volleyball became the spiritual driving force firmly rooted in the hearts of the people at the beginning of reform and opening up.
In 1995, deeply touched by the national needs, I returned home to coach the Chinese womens volleyball team in the low ebb with the results of learning from abroad, hoping to inject vitality into the Chinese womens volleyball team through reform and innovation.
In 2016, the younger generation of Chinese womens volleyball team rose up against the adversity of the Rio Olympic Games and won the gold medal again. The spirit of the womens volleyball team has been continued and inherited on the road of strengthening the Chinese nation.
I often say to the players: standing on the international arena, we represent China, which is a sacred motivation. In fact, womens volleyball spirit is a part of the national spirit of the Chinese nation, which is constantly striving for self-improvement, never giving up. That kind of tenacity, tenacity and perseverance is the soul of womens volleyball spirit.
The Chinese womens volleyball team bears the common memory of generations. At the beginning of the reform and opening up, the spirit of womens volleyball team which is tenacious, united, never yielding to defeat and never giving up encourages the Chinese people to strive hard and stimulates peoples yearning for a better life in the future. Over the past 30 years, the Chinese womens volleyball team has gained success and glory, and has experienced many setbacks and hardships. However, the spirit of the womens volleyball team has been renewed for a long time, which has become an important source of spiritual strength to encourage people to advance bravely in the wave of reform, and glows with a new glory in the new era.
Womens Volleyball Spirit inspires the Chinese people, and we have also drawn a strong force in the continuous innovation and progress of all walks of life in society.
Since I joined the Chinese womens volleyball team 40 years ago, I have the opportunity to become a practitioner and inheritor of the spirit of the womens volleyball team. Today I can accept the praise, it should be said that on behalf of Chinese volleyball players, on behalf of generations of women volleyball players, I am only one of them. This recognition is everyones recognition of Chinese volleyball, especially womens volleyball, and the spirit of struggle of womens volleyball.
From the first time the Chinese womens volleyball team won the world championship, we have been saying down the podium, everything starts from scratch. The road of womens Volleyball Championship and the cause we fought for are always on the road. Everyone of us standing in this position will fight for national honor, and we must have a sense of responsibility and mission, and continue to inherit the spirit of womens volleyball.
