Great Effort Behind Wu Qing's Gold

Wu Qing spent years of unrelenting effort that finally paid off in Beijing.

The Chinese national anthem was heard again. The Chinese national flag rose again. Thanks to Wu Qing, who snatched her first gold at the Paralympics.

Chinese Paralympian Wu Qing said, "I think I've grown up quite fast from my training, which entails both mental and physical hardships. I've learned to balance my mind between training, competitions, and life."

Her rival, Australian silver medalist Kath Proudfoot, achieved her personal best in the final. She praised Wu Qing's performance.

Australian Paralympian Kath Proudfoot said, "I am always in awe of my competitors."

Wu Qing's coach said the young Chinese athlete had gone through fire and water before she could claim her triumph.

Wu Qiong's coach Lv Hong said, "Wu Qing is very industrious. She trained all day, even when others rested and ate. Discus throwers should have strong limbs. But she's thin. It's really amazing that she could achieve her personal best today. Her hard work paid off."

And yet, cases like Wu Qing's take place every day at sporting events.
