As for a famous athlete I know, I would like to talk about Fu Yuanhui who is a swimmer from Hangzhou China, and the first time I knew her was in 2016 Olympic games. One of her interview videos was quite interesting because her responses were hilarious.
In that video, when Fu was told that she was qualified for the final, Fu pulled a comically exaggerated face and declared that “I have used all my prehistorical power to swim.” Prehistorical power is a phrase originates from a Chinese fantasy drama called “the journey of flower”, and in this situation, this phrase is quite suitable and hilarious. When asked what her hopes were for the final, Fu said that” no expectations, I’m very satisfied now.” That’s how she began to rock the Internet and social media. Pitifully, she didn’t win a gold medal in the 100-meter backstroke final, instead, she eventually won a bronze medal, but that hasn’t reduced the affection from her fans.
I think the reason why Fu is so popular on the Internet is that she interpreted the Olympic spirit in an untraditional way which is challenging herself and enjoying the game. That’s the spirit that we Chinese youngsters now look up to.
