Retired Athletes Encouraged to Drive More People to Participate in Sports, Says Liu Guoliang

China News Service, Beijing, March 5

During the ongoing “Two Sessions,” Liu Guoliang, member of the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference and chairman of the China Table Tennis Association, emphasized the importance of retired athletes in promoting sports and physical fitness among the public.

In an interview, Liu Guoliang expressed his belief that retired athletes are valuable assets to the country and society and can play a crucial role in cultivating sports enthusiasts and professionals. By integrating sports into people’s lives, these former athletes can encourage more people to participate in sports and contribute to the improvement of the country’s soft power.

Building on his previous advocacy for extracurricular sports for young children, Liu Guoliang is now focusing on promoting national fitness and bringing national football into campuses and parks. He highlighted the dual benefits of table tennis, stating that it not only brings glory and medals to the country but also promotes national fitness.

Over the years, the national table tennis team has been actively engaging with communities and campuses to promote the sport. Star players are often invited to participate in events and serve as role models for aspiring athletes. Liu Guoliang emphasized the importance of spreading the message of table tennis wherever possible, stating, “Wherever you go, promote it.”

As China continues to prioritize sports and physical fitness, retired athletes like Liu Guoliang are poised to play a critical role in inspiring more people to embrace an active lifestyle and participate in a wide range of sports.
