Until the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, China had never won an Olympic gold medal; now, after Beijing in 2008, she leads the world. China's sudden emergence as a sporting super power came as a surprise to many people. In reality, she has a long history of sports.
Polo, wrestling, soccer, diving, acrobatics, martial arts, archery, marathon races, tug of war, swimming, ice skating, and weight lifting were all popular sports in ancient China. Some sports were invented by the Chinese; others such as polo and marathon-style racing were developed by the different ethnic groups on the borders of the country and became popular within China as well.
This book will enhance your appreciation of China as a sports nation and champion. Take a journey to rediscover the origins of various sports throughout Chinese history.
