Speaking of the new generation of Chinese diving stars, I have to mention this little girl after 00 - Quan Hongchan. Representing her country at the World Championships for the first time, she won her first Olympic gold medal and set a new all-time diving high.
After Quan Hongchan won the championship in diving at the Olympics, only because she honestly answered in an interview that the prize money she received wanted to be used to treat her mother, and then netizens quickly picked up her family background, only to find that Quan Hongchan's family was so poor.
What is her mother's disease? How did Quan Hongchan single-handedly make earth-shaking changes in her family in just two years?
The growth path of a diving genius
Quan Hongchan was born in Zhanjiang, Guangdong Province, to a family of seven and five siblings, and she ranks third and is one of 38 low-income households in the village. Since she was a child, she has helped her family do farm work and never shouts tired.
In 2017, my mother suffered sequelae of epilepsy due to a car accident while going out to work, and she needed to take long-term medication to control her condition, and because of this recurrent condition, she could only recuperate at home and could no longer work outside.
Faced with such great pressure at home, Quan Hongchan's parents did not immediately inform her about it, in order to let their daughter concentrate on training. It wasn't until her mother had another seizure and things couldn't be hidden, that Quan Hongchan learned that her mother was sick.
Later, Quan Hongchan became more determined to achieve success in the Chinese diving industry, knowing that only by winning the place could she get a bonus, and only by winning the place could she have money to treat her mother's illness and improve her already impoverished home.
At a young age, Quan Hongchan has been very obedient and filial since she was a child, understands the hard work of her parents, and feels that she has the ability to take responsibility for the family.
She once said to the coach:
"I just want to be the best in myself so that I can improve my parents' lives and make them better off."
According to Quan Hongchan's parents, the city's sports school came to the rural school to select suitable children to cultivate and train, but coach Chen Huaming saw on the playground that it was Quan Hongchan, who was in the third grade, and found that her bouncing power was very good, with a height of one meter two, and she could actually jump to about one meter seven, so he intended to select her to enter the sports school.
Later, Quan Hongchan and her parents also asked for the consent, Quan Hongchan officially entered the sports school in 2014, at that time, because her family was too poor, Quan Hongchan's living expenses were also paid by the coach in advance.
For Quan Hongchan, who is only 8 years old, the reason why she agreed is that she thinks that she can play in the water without studying, which is really naïve and simple.
But as a result, she found that exercising diving was not so "fun", and when she did not do well, she would be reprimanded by the coach.
At first, I would call my mother to cry, but I quickly adjusted my mentality. During the period of exercise in the sports school, Quan Hongchan also discovered her love for diving, and her daily performance became more and more outstanding, and Coach Chen felt that Quan Hongchan was a talented player with diving talent and would become a great player in the future.
So Coach Chen sent a video of Quan Hongchan practicing diving to Coach He Weiyi of the Guangdong Provincial Team, and Coach He also felt that she was a rare good seedling when he saw the video, so he asked Coach Chen to quickly arrange for Quan Hongchan to come to the provincial team for training.
Sure enough, Quan Hongchan soon became a dark horse in the diving class, after entering the national team, because it was less than a year before participating in the Olympic Games, there was no time to run in with the new coach, and Coach He was also temporarily transferred to the national team to train Quan Hongchan together.
Three weeks before the Tokyo Olympics, Quan Hongchan learned five moves in diving. He then overcame many experienced competitors along the way to become the youngest diving Olympic champion of the year.
The right time and place
From sports schools to provincial teams to national teams, to representing the country, how many people need to go through how long to do it.
But Quan Hongchan, a talented player, did it in only 6 years and won the gold medal in her first appearance. It's really unbelievable.
The so-called ten years of work on stage and one minute offstage, Coach He of the provincial team once said: Everyone sees Quan Hongchan seems to be everything is going well, but in fact, in private, she is very involved in training, and she is studying every movement very seriously, practicing no less than 400 jumps a day, and then the most important thing is that she has a very strong "core", never afraid of the opponent, just jump her own. So many people call her "Sister Hong".
Although Quan Hongchan is young, she has an overly calm heart, which is also one of the important factors that made her win the championship.
Quan Hongchan, who is an Olympic champion, is actually just a child, and she is also a big grinning personality on weekdays, very easygoing.
But because she went to a sports school since she was a child, coupled with her poor family, she has never been to an amusement park or other places as a teenager, and she usually goes home during holidays, and she was very happy to be able to eat spicy strips before.
So after the Olympics, she said she really wanted to go to these places when she had the opportunity. But such a well-behaved and sensible little girl has also been attacked and smeared by netizens, saying: She has a low culture, and she can't even read anything about her mother's illness? "Wait.
Later, Coach He, like an old father, also came forward to protect Quan Hongchan, and publicly said to the media: "She is still young now, she has not been exposed to many things, and she will learn more things in the future." ”
Life cannot always be unimpeded, and she has also met a strong opponent, Chen Qianxi, who is also on the national team, more than a year older than Quan Hongchan, but half a head taller than her.
After the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, Quan Hongchan lost to Chen Qianxi in many diving competitions and could only finish second, and Quan Hongchan's mentality also changed.
After more than a year, before the World Cup match, the reporter asked Quan Hongchan what goal does she have this time?
Quan Hongchan said confidently: two champions.
In the end, she fulfilled her prophecy and won the women's single jump and double diving championship, becoming a double champion.
Especially in the completion of the 207C action, he got almost full scores, and the total score crushed more than 100 points for foreign players.
In the face of such excellent results from Quan Hongchan, Coach He, who had taught her, also felt that in more than three years, she could reach such a height, which was really proud of her and a miracle.
The most common questions asked by reporters after each competition are: "What is your secret to winning the championship?" "If you encounter a bad state, how do you adjust and face it?" And this "How does the Splash Disappearance technique work?" ”
And Quan Hongchan answered most when faced with these questions: "Lianbai." Slowly practice, one movement after another..."Before the defeat in Wuhan, she also returned to school, practicing every day, jumping every day. If you don't think it works, continue to practice.
Quan Hongchan completely explains that as long as the kung fu is deep, the iron pestle is sharpened into a needle. Since then, there has been another world diving Olympic champion in China's history.
Quan Hongchan's family after becoming famous
With Quan Hongchan's rise to fame, the popularity of her family has also been driven, and her brother, who graduated from junior high school and worked abroad, has also taken advantage of the boom of live streaming to return to her hometown to bring her own agricultural products and reduce the family's economic burden.
But also because his father accidentally forwarded the video, but there was an oolong, Quan Hongchan's brother also publicly explained in a social live broadcast recently, his father originally saw that the interior of this self-built three-story was very good, and wanted to collect it and watch it slowly, but he mistakenly pressed forward.
Once again, it is clarified that no mansion and villa were built, which is completely illusory. But many netizens also said: "If you have the ability, it is okay to build a villa, and you don't steal or rob." ”
At that time, the government enterprise also gave 200,000 yuan in cash and a house as condolences, and in the face of this huge temptation, the simple Quan Hongchan's parents did not accept it, but just accepted a bouquet of flowers to show that they had received it.
It can be seen from this that Quan Hongchan's parents are not people who see money, and the most important thing is to protect their daughter's hard-won honor.
Such a family with three correct views has also raised Quan Hongchan, who is well-behaved and sensible, and knows how to be grateful for grace.
There are many popular people, this is an inevitable thing. Because Quan Hongchan is so good, and her road to fame has also encouraged many people. Therefore, he became famous for a while, and his family's words and deeds were very easy to be noticed by others.
In addition to filming his sister's appearance on the farm at the very beginning, Quan Hongchan's brother did not mention his sister too much in the follow-up live broadcast, and it seems that he does not want to deliberately consume his sister's honor, or overuse his sister to promote eyeballs.
But in any case, there is a world Olympic champion at home, and the resources and traffic that come with it will definitely follow, but it is understandable to properly use this advantage to make money and change the status quo.
But there are always some red-eyed netizens who come out to smear. Is it wrong for their whole family not to accept food and to rely on themselves to fend for themselves?
Now, for the convenience of future training and competition, Quan Hongchan officially entered the household as a "new Guangzhou person" from July last year.
Many people say that Quan Hongchan's debut is the peak, but people can't just look at the scenery in front of others and ignore the hardships behind her.
Quan Hongchan has paid a lot of sweat, as well as lost the childhood time and life that her peers should have, training every day and night, trying to play her best every time, in exchange for her current achievements. Talent and hard work go hand in hand.
Now Quan Hongchan's only one sister in the family is still studying, her brother returns to her hometown to sell agricultural products live, and her younger siblings have all entered the sports school diving team.
The days are getting better and better, and it is said that Quan Hongchan's younger brother is also very talented in diving, and it is very likely to become the next Quan Hongchan.
Quan Hongchan changed her fate with her own efforts, not only won glory for the country, but also improved the living standards of a large family, and also had more funds to treat her mother's epilepsy, which is a win-win situation.
Step by step, the 16-year-old Chinese diving Olympic champion Quan Hongchan can look forward to the future!
