This is a blog dedicated to Chinese Women Artistic Gymnastics where you can find photos and stories of Chinese gymnasts. This blog is written by someone who is not involved with gymnastics; however, as an enthusiastic TV audience, I love this sport and admire the girls who work so hard everyday for it. This is my way of saying thank you to the gymnasts for their hard work, by telling their stories. =)

Deng Linlin and Chen Yibing Joins Amway Nutrilite Health Run
While the 2012 Chinese National Gymnastics Individual Championships was going on over the weekend, Olympic Champions Deng Linlin and Chen Yibing were out doing some charity work; both joined the Amway Nutrilite 5 kilometers Health Run. Deng Linlin lead the 5k Run in the city of Hefei while Chen Yibing did his part in the city of Hangzhou. Coincidentally both cities saw some light drizzle on the day of the event, but the rain didn’t stop the people from joining in the health run; event organizers estimated the participants in each city to about 10,000.
