CCTV News (Reporter Xu Yeqing): The Tokyo Olympic Games will soon begin, and the sports teams of the Chinese delegation have successively arrived in Tokyo, Japan.
A total of 33 major events, 50 sub-items and 339 minor events were set up in the competition, which will be the most gold medal-winning event in all previous Olympics.
The Chinese delegation sent a total of 431 athletes to participate in 30 major events (298 female athletes and 133 male athletes).
Their average age is 25.4 years old, the youngest is the diving team Quan Hongchan (14 years old), and the oldest is the equestrian team Li Zhenqiang (52 years old).
According to statistics from CCTV, in addition to the Tokyo Olympics, since 1984, Chinese athletes have participated in the Summer Olympics 9 times and won a total of 224 gold medals.
Due to the long interval between each Olympic Games, there will be new and old athletes alternate during the period. The number of medals won by the Chinese delegation is often uncertain, but the overall trend is still increasing.
In the 2008 Beijing Olympics, the total number of gold medals in the Chinese delegation ranked first in the world, achieving a historic breakthrough.
Data shows that the Chinese delegation has won gold medals in 20 major events of the previous Olympic Games, and diving, weightlifting, gymnastics, table tennis, shooting, badminton and other events are the traditional advantages of the "Chinese Legion".
In addition, the Chinese women's volleyball team also won 3 gold medals in the 9 Olympics. Women's volleyball is also one of the most popular events for the Chinese team to compete for gold and silver in the Olympics.
The age span of Chinese Olympic athletes when they win the championship is relatively large, but they are mainly between 20-25 years old.
Among them, in gymnastics, diving, and other events, the participants who won gold medals for China are generally younger, while those who win gold after the age of 30 are mainly shooters.
It is worth noting that among the previous popular gold-picking events, the difference in age of the champions in gymnastics, diving and shooting is relatively large. This reflects the fact that those Chinese athletes who dominate the Olympic arena may be "new born calves who are not afraid of tigers." Dark horse players may also be veterans with better experience.
Among the athletes participating in the Tokyo Olympics this time, 293 participated in the Olympics for the first time. Of course, there are also "veteran" athletes who participated in the 4th Olympic Games.
Let us look forward to the wonderful performance of the "Chinese Olympic Team"!Keywords:
