Beijing, 10 Oct (Zhongxin Net) -- On the evening of 9 October, a sports carnival was held at the Hangzhou Olympic Sports Center Stadium. On the night of cold dew, the 8-day Hangzhou Asian Games came to a successful end, and the beautiful memories of the Asian Games in this autumn season are all sealed in this city where ancient and modern meet. On the way home, friends from all over the world also brought these "Made in China" home.

A few days ago, 48-year-old Uzbek gymnast Chusovykina bid farewell to Hangzhou and returned to China. While thanking the hosts for their enthusiasm and the support of Chinese fans, Chusovykina also missed the mattresses in the Asian Games Village.

In a previous interview, she said that the perfect training facilities and comfortable living environment of the Hangzhou Asian Games were impressive, "I slept well here, and even wanted to get in bed for a while in the morning." Chusovikina said. After the game, Chusovykina also asked the staff where to buy the same mattress in the Asian Games Village, and she wanted to go home with this comfortable mattress.

It is reported that after the mattress manufacturer learned of this, he immediately arranged the same mattress for Chusovikina. Although he did not win a medal in Hangzhou, he could still enjoy "five-star sleep" after returning home, and this trip to Hangzhou by "Qiu Mama" was not worth the trip.

As early as before the opening of the Asian Games, the topic of #foreign athletes buying crazy in Hangzhou rushed to the hot search list. They visit shopping malls all over Hangzhou and have a soft spot for "Chinese goods".

Qianjiang Small Commodities Wholesale Market and Hangzhou Sijiqing Market have become popular shopping paradises for athletes. Socks, coats, drinking glasses, sneakers, razors, routers... From daily necessities to electronic products, they are all packed and taken away by foreign athletes. Merchants in Hangzhou also show great sincerity to attract customers with the best quality service and affordable prices. Some bosses revealed that foreign athletes also pay attention to cost performance, and they even have mastered China's unique haggling "secrets" - "cut in half" and "if I don't sell, I will leave".

It is worth mentioning that basketball star "Big Shark" O'Neill bought a pair of cool sunglasses at Four Seasons while watching the game in Hangzhou.

This shopping spree not only brings real benefits to merchants, but also gives athletes from all over the world the opportunity to learn about Chinese culture and customs. With the opportunity of the Hangzhou Asian Games, some intangible cultural heritage carrying excellent national cultural genes can also be seen by the world.

Some foreign athletes found the old night market in Hangzhou, Wulin Night Market. Some people bought handmade silver jewelry, some bought classical plum hairpins, and some bought intangible cultural heritage masks - "Hangzhou Face Ghosts".

In addition to traditional handicrafts, traditional Chinese medicine was once again "out of the loop" during the Hangzhou Asian Games. The Chinese Medicine Culture Experience Center in the Asian Games Village attracted a large number of athletes and technical officials who came to visit and experience. An Emirati athlete bought a hot patch of wormwood for pain relief at the Asian Games village, and a foreign brother brought a suitcase full of proprietary Chinese medicine to his family. He said that his mother is a fan of traditional Chinese medicine, and Chinese food is also available abroad, but Chinese medicine cannot be bought abroad. With the help of volunteers, he bought cold medicine, lotus fragrance zhengqi water, etc., and actually bought a cupping machine.

These Chinese "specialties" go abroad, which also shows that "Made in China" is being recognized and loved by people around the world. With the take-off of China's economy, domestic products have long thrown off the cheap label, and many excellent domestic brands have also entered the high-end track. Through the "window" of the Hangzhou Asian Games, "Made in China" has also left a different "Chinese memory" to the world. (End)
