Two were adopted by American couples.

The first sister of the American womens team, Holder, was born in July 2001 in Wuzhou, Guangxi, but was abandoned by her parents and raised in an orphanage. When she was 2 years old, she was lucky to be adopted by an American couple from Delaware and has since settled in the United States.

Ilke was born in 2002 in Jiangxi, similar to Holder, but also abandoned by her parents since childhood, living in an orphanage. When she was more than one year old, the adopted parents adopted her from an orphanage in Duchang County, Jiujiang, Jiangxi Province, and began her new life in Missouri.

Why is there such a coincidence? It may only mean that a few Chinese abandoned babies are adopted by American couples. Statistics show that by 2015, about 90,000 Chinese orphans had been adopted by Americans, and 88% of them were girls.

Orphans of China have outstanding talents.

Holder studied skating, baseball, soccer and other sports as a child, but she chose Gymnastics in the end. Her figure is much smaller than that of her peers, and gymnastics is more suitable for her. Because she preferred gymnastics, Holder, who had been exposed to gymnastics since the age of three, showed talent, reaching the U.S. Amateur Gymnastic level 4 at the age of nine, and reached the professional level 10 at the Liukin Cup in 2014 at the age of 13. So when she was young, she was called the gifted athlete by her coach. At the 2017 World Gymnastics Championships, 16-year-old Holder made his debut on the world championship stage and won the womens all-around gold medal, becoming the mainstay of the U.S. team.

Eccar, who also lived in the same age, began to touch gymnastics at the age of 3, and her strength was balance beam. In the final of the womens team at the World Championships, Iker only played on the balance beam and scored only 14 points.
