“Champion! Stable!” Cheers came from the conference room on the 4th floor of the local Education and Sports Bureau in Zou Jingyuan’s hometown of Yibin City, Sichuan Province. Among the crowd, Zou Jingyuan’s enlightenment coach Li Xiaobing burst into tears. “It’s rare to get a score of 16 or more in the parallel bars event. His entire set of moves was done flawlessly!”
