Gymnasts Attends Lecture on Competitive Spirit
With the National Championships being only weeks away, National Team Athletes Cultural and Educational Center has organized a lecture over the weekend for all gymnasts that focuses on the core substance of the “Sword Spirit” or competitive spirit. The lecture was intended to inspire gymnasts to own the moment in competitions with indomitable fighting will to win.
Team Leader Coach Ye Zhennan explains that in competition, in addition to superb techniques, athletes also need to have strong mental qualities in order to withstand the pressure at the critical moment. Coaches hope their gymnasts to have a more in depth understanding of the “Sword Spirit” and apply what they’ve learned in competition.
