  Olympic champion Qian Hong

  The opportunity to study is rare, and the experience is necessary

  In the 1992 Olympics, Qian Hong won the women's 100-meter butterfly championship. He was China's first women's butterfly Olympic champion. He was also the first "butterfly queen" before Zhang Yufei, Jiao Liuyang and Liu Zige.

After retiring, Qian Hong has been engaged in the promotion and popularization of youth swimming training, and also went to the graduate championship class of Beijing Sport University.

  Beijing News: Are there many learning opportunities during the athlete period?

How did you think of applying for the championship class after retiring?

  Qian Hong: Before retiring, we were training and studying. I was a student of Hebei Institute of Physical Education. After training, a teacher would teach us at the Training Bureau of the State Administration of Sports.

After retiring, the athletes at that time were either coaches, or entrepreneurs, going to the sea and doing business. The chances of going to university were actually very few. So I am very grateful to the leaders of the University of Beijing at that time for giving us the opportunity to study.

  Beijing News: Was the application process smooth?

Does the championship class have high academic requirements?

  Qian Hong: The application requires a lot of materials and certifications, an interview, and a recommendation from the State Sports General Administration.

My major is sports training. Every semester I have a fixed time for intensive teaching, including English. The requirements are quite high, and the graduation thesis must be passed.

  Beijing News: Does the experience of studying in the champion class help you to work in the future?

  Qian Hong: I personally think it's a great help, especially after entering that environment, everyone's identities have changed. In the past, the athletes were teammates, but they became classmates and alumni in school.

The purpose at that time was to gain knowledge and effectively combine the professional knowledge accumulated when we were athletes with the knowledge of the school.

  Beijing News: More and more athletes realize the importance of learning. What do you want to say to them who are studying?

  Qian Hong: Athletes have experienced unknown hardships in their careers, and it is not very difficult to adapt to the campus.

  Beijing News: After graduating from the championship class, what kind of work do you mainly engage in?

  Qian Hong: It is mainly about the promotion and popularization of swimming training, focusing on young people, and will also participate in popularizing professional sports training knowledge.

  Gao Fangxia: I was a sports training major at the time. I had an undergraduate course for 4 years. I had an exam every semester and I had to pass the score.

You must also write your graduation thesis and conduct a thesis defense.

My graduation thesis is about archery for the disabled. After a few years of courses, I feel that my perception and cognition of training competitions coincides with what the teacher said.

Compared with pressure, I think I have gained more.

  Beijing News: How do you plan for the future?

How will the experience of studying will help you in your life after retirement?
