CCTV news (news broadcast): At the Tokyo Paralympic Games, Chinese Paralympic athletes struggled stubbornly and achieved excellent results. This is also a vivid example of the great progress made in my country’s disabled sports and the development of China’s human rights cause. Portrayal.
At the Tokyo Paralympic Games track and field stadium, the blind athlete who was lifted up by the front runner after the game was named Liu Cuiqing. Since 2013, she and lead runner Xu Donglin have become partners, relying on a 10 cm tow rope to fight side by side. After 8 years of persistence and dedication, they joined hands in Tokyo and successfully defended the title.
Nowadays, the hand-in-hand in stadiums like Liu Cuiqing and Xu Donglin also extends to the off-site national fitness team. Near the Olympic Sports Center in Huzhou City, Zhejiang Province, a group of runners in orange sports shirts appear every weekend, with the words “visually impaired” and “accompany running” written on their backs. This is an accompanying running project initiated by the local association for the blind and charity individuals in 2018. Now it has grown from five or six people at the beginning to more than 80 people who regularly take part in the regular run.
During the “Thirteenth Five-Year Plan” period, the number of disabled people in my country who often participated in cultural and sports activities organized by the community increased from 6.8% at the end of the “Twelfth Five-Year Plan” period to 14.6%. The China Disabled Persons’ Federation and the State General Administration of Sports jointly issued a document to further incorporate the rehabilitation and fitness work of the disabled into the overall situation of the cause of the disabled and the national fitness. As of December 2020, a total of 13,313 community fitness demonstration sites for the disabled have been established nationwide, and nearly 140,000 social sports instructors for the disabled have been trained. In Changqiao Street, Xuhui District, Shanghai, this “Smart Sunshine Health and Wellness Garden” is specially set up for the disabled. The disabled can exercise without leaving the community and receive professional guidance.
During the “14th Five-Year Plan” period, my country will continue to work hard to improve the mass sports organizations for the disabled, improve the fitness facilities for the disabled, and host more mass sports events, so that more people with disabilities can gain confidence and health in sports.
