Chinese Olympic Training

I always knew being a professional athlete meant making serious sacrifices and that gymnasts don’t really have a childhood, but this like modern day torture to me.

They are, actually, taken from home and from their parents when they were very young. When they start training sessions, most of them have five or six years. For their parents, the only way to see them is on the Olympic games, somewhere in a future.

    how sweet of your life then you must have a bitter life first.
