  And Wang Meng's more glamorous moment in the Winter Olympics was the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics.

After 4 years of hard work, Wang Meng at this time has become more mature and has become the backbone of the team.

In the final, Wang Meng won the championship with absolute advantage and won the gold medal in the women's short track speed skating 500m.

  So far, Wang Meng has become the first "Triple Crown" in the history of China's short track.

  Wang Meng had the opportunity to make more history. However, less than a month before the opening of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, Wang Meng was unfortunately injured in a training session. She fractured both the inner and outer ankle bones of her right foot. Unfortunately, she missed the trip.

  In the history of the Chinese delegation’s Winter Olympics, Wang Meng has left too many memorable moments with his outstanding performance.

Her record of 4 gold medals has not been broken by other Chinese players.
