Su Bingtian, one of the most popular athletes in China and the first ever Asian-born sprinter to break the 10-second barrier of the 100 metres event in track and field, visited the China Greater Bay Area Experimental School in Guangzhou’s Nansha District recently and encouraged students to engage in sports.
As the director of Su Bingtian Center for Speed Research and Training, Su indicated he will look for students who have the potential for sports, hold more sports events, and promote sports among students.
According to the Nansha government, Nansha has set up 37 pilot amateur sports training centers for teenagers of local schools or other stadiums, which aims to promote competitive sports.
Su was impressed by the sports facilities after having visited the basketball stadium, badminton gym, and indoor swimming pool in the China Greater Bay Area Experimental School. “Nansha has a good environment for sports development, especially for tennis and sailing,” said Su.
“Everyone should chase their dreams even though it is hard. You should take challenges and become the best version of yourself,” Su gave a speech at the China Greater Bay Area Experimental School and encourage students that their efforts will pay off one day.
