    Inside China's sports schools in search for next Olympic star Heartbreaking images of a child crying have emerged from a children's school in China, a country where in the past, young children have been placed in schools designed to train future Olympic champions. It's one of many pictures captured in sporting schools across China of young children being put through gruelling training routines at ages as young as six. However, things are changing in the country as demographics shift as the country grows more prosperous and a larger focus is placed on different forms of education. China's sports system has been enormously successful since the country returned to the Olympic fold in 1980, culminating with the host nation topping the medals' table at the 2008 Beijing Olympics with only a sl...

I am not an expert on youth athletic training programs employed around the world and I suspect the level of training needed to get to Olympic Gold status is rigorous no matter the country.

But a disciplined diet is just as important. There are tight restrictions on Olympic athletes in some countries like China, where they are not allowed to eat at a public restaurant or street vendor, because they might accidently ingest performance enhancing chemicals. The Chinese marathon runners raise their own chickens to ensure that the meat is not tampered with, and the judo team has a supply of pork from live pigs that they take care of.

    It seems that Chinese people's attitudes towards gold medals are changing significantly at the Rio Olympics. The public used to care deeply about China's ranking in the medal table, but this year, people seem to care more about the individual stories of the athletes. However, China still maintains a whole-nation sports system, which cost over 6 billion US dollars last year. Most funding comes from the government. Many are still saying that winning gold is the most important task because the athletes have been trained with huge amounts of taxpayer money. What’s your opinion?

Inside China's sports schools in search for next Olympic star Heartbreaking images of a child crying have emerged from a children's school in China, a country where in the past, young children have been placed in schools designed to train future Olympic champions. It's one of many pictures captured in sporting schools across China of young children being put through gruelling training routines at ages as young as six. However, things are changing in the country as demographics shift as the country grows more prosperous and a larger focus is placed on different forms of education. China's sports system has been enormously successful since the country returned to the Olympic fold in 1980, culminating with the host nation topping the medals' table at the 2008 Beijing Olympics with only a slight dip into second place behind the United States in London four years later. Fewer parents are willing to let their children endure gruelling training routines, leading to a fall in student numbers. Some schools have closed and others are adjusting the way they work. The number of sport schools is down from 3,687 in 1990, government numbers show. At Shanghai's No.1 Children's Sports School Pudong New Area where the change is unfolding, the school's party committee secretary, Huang Qin, said: 'In the 1980s and 1990s, schools like ours were extremely attractive'. '(But) parents are less willing now to send their child to sports schools The school's alumni include former Olympians such as hurdler Chen Yanhao and female footballer Xie Huilin.if they perform fairly well in exams...The source of students for sports schools has shrunk as society placed more importance on cultural education.' Debates about the continued relevance of the sports school system began to emerge around the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Huang and other schools said, as emerging tales of difficulties facing retired athletes jarred against rising expectations of education standards among China's booming middle-class. The country's declining birth rate as a result of China's one-child policy has not helped either, along with its cut-throat education system, which sees Chinese students spend twice as much time on homework a day compared to the global average. Beijing responded to these concerns in 2010 by issuing a new policy, known as document 23, ordering sport schools to improve teaching standards and to give more support to retired athletes. At the No.1 Children's Sports School Pudong New Area, Huang said it had improved its teacher training. Three years ago, it also relaxed a 40-year tradition of requiring its entire student cohort to study, train and live full-time on campus. Now, more than half of the school's 700 athletes study at other schools. Of its remaining 300 or so full-time students, about 10 percent live off-campus. Other schools like the Shanghai Yangpu Youth Amateur Athletic School, are going into kindergartens to advertise gymnastics as an after-school play time activity to parents. 'We call it happy gymnastics,' said principal Zhu Zengxiang. At Beijing's Shichahai, adorned with posters extolling the feats of ex-students turned Olympic champions, vice-head Zhang Jing said the school offered 'comprehensive development' and equipped athletes with the skills needed for life after sport. The Shanghai Sports School, whose alumni include former Olympic swimming champion Liu Zige, began in 2012 to reject athletes that did not pass its academic entrance exams, and tells parents it wants to use sports training to educate rather than as an end-goal, according to principal Sheng Maowu. 'A lot of sport schools are moving in this direction...but this is a painful process,' he said. 'At present the existing thought is that education and training are two different routes -- if you want to be a world champion you cannot study. This belief is wrong...and at the end of the day very few become champions.' The government does not publish student enrolment at its sports schools, but there are signs that the changing landscape has already begun to impact China's pool of sporting talent. In April, the China Sports Daily reported that the number of Chinese athletes training to be table tennis players had fallen by almost a quarter since 1987 to 23,266. 'In this changing situation, we must re-examine the traditional training system and model for competitive sports,' Liu Shaonong, head of the table tennis and badminton centre of China's General Administration of Sport, was quoted as saying. Reform, however, is proving slow to take root. In March, a government survey found that some schools inspected across nine cities and provinces did not spend enough money on education, and some local education departments paid little attention to making improvements in line with document 23, according to state media.

China swept 26 gold, 18 silver and 26 bronze medals at Rio, ranking among the top three on the medal or gold medal tally. "You have written a new chapter in Chinese sports history," Xi told the Chinese delegation. Xi praised the Chinese Olympians for being "goodwill envoys" during their exchanges with athletes from all over the world, as well as with international sports organizations. He also hailed the Chinese Olympians as great athletes with sporting morals and role models for the Chinese youth. The Chinese president also praised those athletes who didn't win medals but had tried their best. On the Chinese women's volleyball team, Xi said: "The whole nation is excited at China's first volleyball gold in 12 years. "The Chinese women's team feared no one and played to their best." Xi also urged Chinese to host "fantastic, extraordinary and excellent" Winter Olympics and Paralympics in 2022. "I hope Chinese will take the preparation for and hosting of the 2022 Winter Olympics and Paralympics as a great opportunity to advance our sports development," he said.

Not even ten years-old, the youngest only three, some have even yet to learn how to tie their shoe laces. Others have never left their parents’ sides. But all of these children have left their hometowns to travel to a boarding school faraway to pursue a dream, the Olympic dream. Every year, the children look forward to the annual provincial competition, a platform for them to be selected by the national gymnastic squad to further their training. More than 100 children, aged between three and ten years come from all over China to the infamous Li Xiaoshuang Gymnastic School to live their dream. We hear from the parents, visit their homes and ask them what has motivated them to sacrifice their children’s childhood and to take them away from the heart of the family at such a tender age.

Hello! Subscribe to my YouTube channel. Following the Beijing Olympics the press highlighted many of the questionable tactics the Chinese employed to train their youth athletes. Some say it is what hard work and dedication looks like while others say it is torture/abuse. I am not an expert on youth athletic training programs employed around the world and I suspect the level of training needed to get to Olympic Gold status is rigorous no matter the country. Many say it is unfair to only look at China, that all of the top performing countries employ similar tactics in their youth development programs, which may very well be true. I am simply presenting material I have come across. I put pictures into a slideshow so it won't take up all kinds of room and I have also posted a video. There are many videos on the web regarding this topic if you want to look into it further. Look forward to the comments.

Performed by Military Band of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (中国人名解放军军乐团) This is the most widely played music in sports events across China. For many people like me, it is also reminiscent of the good old schooldays. Ironically, it is only by looking back that I begin to realize how much I have always loved this music -- refreshing, inspiring, and oh so positive -- and its company to this day. Hope forever it stays! Enjoy!

China's diving team departed Beijing and the country's swimmers and 4x100m relay teams arrived in the Olympic city. The 13 Chinese divers, seven experienced and six rising stars, will participate in eight events. Chinese diver Wu Minxia, who has won six Olympic medals including four golds during her illustrious career, is ready for to compete at her fourth Olympics. "I have thought over all the difficulties. Only if you face up to difficulties can you challenge them. I don't think it's necessary to think about the result. What I need to do is to pay attention to the course of events. If my partner and I can perform our dives well, I think we will get close to the gold medal," said Wu. China's swimming team and sprint relay teams arrived in Rio on Sunday morning and Sunday evening respectively. Supporters holding banners and flags welcomed the Chinese delegation as they arrived. The arrival of Sun Yang, winner of the men's 400m and 1,500m freestyle at the 2012 London Olympics, and 2015 men's 100m freestyle world champion Ning Zetao excited the supporters waiting at the airport.

Strict Diet Guidelines for Chinese Olympic Athletes - as part of the news series by GeoBeats. To become an Olympic athlete requires years of strenuous physical practice. But a disciplined diet is just as important. There are tight restrictions on Olympic athletes in some countries like China, where they are not allowed to eat at a public restaurant or street vendor, because they might accidently ingest performance enhancing chemicals. The Chinese marathon runners raise their own chickens to ensure that the meat is not tampered with, and the judo team has a supply of pork from live pigs that they take care of. The Chinese women's volleyball team was on a strict diet during the 2012 World Grand Prix finals because they didn't have access to the special certified untainted meat from their cafeteria back home. The women came in fifth place, which the coach blamed on the lack of meat on their plates. One of the coaches told Beijing News: "We dared not eat pork when we come out of our training camp for the tournament because we are afraid of clenbuterol." The chemical that is found in about half of the meat consumed in Beijing.

It seems that Chinese people's attitudes towards gold medals are changing significantly at the Rio Olympics. The public used to care deeply about China's ranking in the medal table, but this year, people seem to care more about the individual stories of the athletes. However, China still maintains a whole-nation sports system, which cost over 6 billion US dollars last year. Most funding comes from the government. Many are still saying that winning gold is the most important task because the athletes have been trained with huge amounts of taxpayer money. What’s your opinion?
