"To me, the Olympics mean challenging myself and realizing my dream. I had to try my best during the Games after I qualified to compete. As for the result, let it be."
"The Olympics stand for dreams, gains, happiness and enjoyment."
"As I entered the Olympic village in Athens in 2004, the feeling was totally different from [the feeling I got from] other events. It was my first Olympic Games. All the Chinese athletes united as one person to compete for the country. The Olympics mean much more -- pressure as well as motivation -- to every Olympian."
"I think participation in the Beijing Olympic Games is a dream shared by every athlete. We must make every effort to qualify for that. There are no exceptions for us, athletes who used to won Olympic gold medals."
"The results may be good or may not. I won't regret it as long as I've tried my best."
"I'll try my best to qualify for the Beijing Olympic Games and realize my dream."
"The Olympics mean courage. The power of courage makes me fight till the end."
"The Olympics mean participation. A gold medal, to me, was not the final target. I just wanted to play my part well since I was a professional athlete."
"The Olympics mean pursuing my dreams."
"The Beijing Olympic Games, to me, mean starting over again from the very beginning."
"The Olympics can be regarded as a stage that can make every one's dreams come true. It is true that every Olympian has his or her own dream. The Beijing Olympics to me probably means my last remaining dream."
"No pain, no gain. I'll win a gold medal in Beijing as I did in Athens four years ago, and I'll give my coach a big hug as compensation for my neglect last time."
"I'll beat all my rivals to win a gold medal."
"The opportunity of participating in the Olympic Games is previous for football players since there is a limitation on age. I'll try my best to compete for China. But if I fail, I would like to go to Beijing to watch the Games. It's good to feel the Olympic spirit inside the venues."
