  The new National Stadium on August 1 was bathed in the bright sunshine of Tokyo's midsummer.

That kind of wanton fierceness is just like Gong Lijiao's shouting after his last throw of 20 meters 58, and just like Gong Lijiao's cry in the mixed mining area after winning the shot put championship.

On August 1, local time, in the women's shot put final of the Tokyo Olympics, the Chinese star Gong Lijiao successfully won the championship with a personal best of 20 meters and 58 meters.

This is Gong Lijiao's first Olympic gold medal in his career, as well as the first gold medal won by the Chinese track and field team in this Olympics.

  "I did it, I finally did it." Gong Lijiao was sweating and couldn't help but choke again at this moment.

After a pause, she wiped her face with her hand, trying to wipe the sweat from her forehead and the tears from her eyes.

  As a leader who has maintained strong competitiveness in the field of world women’s shot put, it is hard to imagine that Gong Lijiao has never "on the podium" in the past three Olympic Games-although she won the third place in 2008 and 2012 respectively. And the runner-up, but both times because of the cancellation of other players' results, they were made up for.

  This kind of past poked her the most.

She once told reporters in tears, "It's really unfair to me." At the London Olympics, she threw a good score of 20 meters 13 in the first throw of the final, and even 20 meters in the fifth throw. twenty two.

But in the last shot, the Russian Klodeko, who made all the mistakes in the first three shots, actually shot 20.48 in one fell swoop, stealing Gong Lijiao's bronze medal.

  However, seven days later, the winning Belarusian player was found to have used illicit drugs and was withdrawn from the gold medal. Gong Lijiao received the bronze medal. Four years later, the "struck brave" Klodeko was found to have used stimulants in a urine sample review. Gong Lijiao won the silver medal again.

  The bronze medal in the 2008 Beijing Olympics was 11 years late.

Gong Lijiao, who was only 19 years old, competed for the first time. She said that her legs had been trembling all the time, and she finally finished fifth.

After many years, the first runner-up and third runner-up were disqualified from the drug inspection and the results were cancelled. It was not until the end of 2019 that she received the bronze medal.

  Now, Gong Lijiao has stood on the Olympic podium for the first time, but this time, her medal has finally been replaced by the most blazing gold.

  "I have waited for too long at this moment, and this feeling of the scene has been thought of countless times in my mind." In fact, she only slept for more than four hours last night, and all she thought about was the scene of the game, how can she shoot further , What are the technical moves to cast a long distance?

  Everything on the day was as she wished.

Gong Lijiao established the lead on his first shot, 19 meters 95, which was a result that Sanders, who eventually won the runner-up, failed to achieve.

She improved to 19 meters 98 on the third shot, and another 20 meters 53 on the fifth shot. This is almost the winning shot, which is better than the world best score of 20 meters 39 she created this year.

  Gong Lijiao yelled and pointed to the five-star red flag on his chest in front of the camera. He was obviously satisfied with the result.

The crucial sixth shot was Sanders' last fight. This American who likes to be unconventional, specially wore a mask with beast teeth in the finals, and was eager to try.

  Gong Lijiao said that Sanders "stared" at her from time to time during the game, and she also "replied" severely and "cannot lose in momentum."

However, the American fouled the sixth shot, and Gong Lijiao had already won the gold medal in advance.

  Gong Lijiao smashed the shot to the ground like a ball, stood confidently on the throwing area, and shouted again. A set of movements were clean and perfect, 20 meters 58!

Gong Lijiao set another personal best.

She put on the national flag, and her eyes were full of tears again.

  "It's worth it, and all the persistence is worth it." Gong Lijiao said frankly that the moment the Tokyo Olympics announced the postponement, she felt that the sky was going to fall. "This is too difficult for athletes, especially for me who are no longer young. Athlete." As he said, Gong Lijiao cried again.

  At this moment, all emotions were released wantonly.

There are sweat for sticking to dreams and tears for making up for regrets. This moment is intertwined to achieve one of the most fierce emotions, just like the color of a gold medal.

  When receiving the "long-lost" silver and bronze, Gong Lijiao once said that justice and fairness may be late, but they will never be absent.

The year after the Olympic Games was postponed made this gold medal also late, but it was still not absent.

  "The world is worth it."

After calming down, Gong Lijiao used such quiet words to describe the way she came.

Picking gold on the court, releasing a kind of wanton fierceness, and behind this, like "the beautiful flowers in the water", it is the purest and simple pursuit.
