Deng Linlin Elected Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) Committee Member of Anhui Province
Olympic champion Deng Linlin was elected as one of the committee member of the Eleventh Session of Anhui CPPCC; thus becoming the youngest CPPCC committe member of the current session.
Some people question Deng Linlin’s ability as a committee member; they raised the question on what can a young gymnast born after 1990 can do for the people and how can she really understand the issue of people’s livelihood. People are concerned on how can an Olympic Champion who is still busy training and preparing for various competitions have the time and ability to deal with important issues. When confronting these questions and distrusts, Deng Linlin’s response to the public was simple— “I will be a qualified CPPCC committee member”.
Good luck to Dengdeng! 加油安徽小丫!
