A 14-year-old Chinese diver obliterated the competition at the Tokyo Aquatics Centre with her three perfect-10 scores to capture a gold medal in dominant fashion in the Olympic 10m platform final on August 5, 2021. Quan Hongchan, the youngest member of China’s team at the Tokyo Games, racked up a stunning overall score of 466.20 points, breaking the previous Olympic record of 447.70. The newest diver in a long line of Chinese Olympic champions took up the sport as a way to financially support her mother who has an illness that requires year-round treatment. Chinese fans have been inspired by her story of a rise above poverty to Olympic history.

Scmp do know how to make such sentimental stories which attract so many views. My country's news channel has to learn from them.

Why all news channel and YouTube not saying anything bad about china for torturing the athletes .
Comment section is full of congratulations and appreciation , but after Olympics everyone start commenting bad about China's torture and factory of athletes. What a hypocrisy?

Olympic medal at 14? Now thats an achievement

Architeuthis Dux says:

What a story. This is what separates the gold from the silver and bronze. The Western culture is usually about having fun and enjoying your sport and trying your best. In Eastern culture there is more pressure, striving to ALWAYS be the best and DOING your best. Their training regime is a lot more disciplined. You witness this in the general working environment on a day to day basis as well.

Basil Hawkins says:

At age 14 she's already achieved so much, her country and family must be so pround of her!
