What does her family expect from her?
The reporter of the county media center interviewed
Chen Yufei's parents Chen Zhe and Zhao Genfeng
She studied sports because she was "too skinny as a child"
With short hair and flowing spirits, Chen Yufei on the field has always given people the impression of a "tomboy".
In her parents' memories, Chen Yufei has been energetic since she was a child: "She doesn't get tired all day long, and she rarely sits quietly, jumping up and down on the sofa, and we once thought she had ADHD." "Father Chen Zhe is a sports enthusiast, seeing that his daughter is active and has good coordination, he wants to send her to see if she is a seedling who practices sports, so by chance, Chen Yufei went to Hangzhou Chen Jinglun Sports School to practice badminton.
Compared with her father's decisiveness, Chen Yufei's mother Zhao Genfeng said that she was very hesitant at that time, she said: "I can't bear to send my daughter to Hangzhou at such a young age, at that time I had to feed at home, and my grandmother resolutely disagreed." Later, the coach repeatedly came to the house to do ideological work, and Zhao Genfeng finally handed over the decision to his daughter, "I'll go!" "6-year-old Chen Yufei is direct and determined.
Until the provincial team, Zhao Genfeng still tried to say that Yufei would come home because he felt sorry for his daughter's hard training. But the daughter decided: she likes to play and does not come back.
"Since you have decided on this path, you must keep going." "Okay, I'll fight well." This is a conversation between mother and daughter.
In this way, Chen Yufei's badminton road has come all the way to the present.
Every medal is hard-won
In Chen Yufei's home, there is a "wall of honor" filled with medals and trophies from her various competitions. "This gold medal is the gold medal of the Olympics." "These are the gold medals of the BWF Open." For each medal, Chen Zhe and Zhao Genfeng clearly remember which year and which competition they were in.
Chen Yufei's photos when she was a child and the couple often flipped through them, and each one was full of memories. "She also tied two braids when she was a child, which reached her shoulders." Zhao Genfeng pointed to one of the photos and told reporters, "Because when we were 6 years old, we sent Yufei to Hangzhou Chen Jinglun Sports School, worried that she would not be able to tie her own braids, so she simply cut her hair short, and this hairstyle has been kept until now." ”
Practicing badminton is very hard, and it is difficult to achieve results, "As a parent, although I am very distressed, I must support her and give her faith to persevere." Chen Zhe said. Athletes will have some injuries to some extent, but Chen Yufei has always been "good news but not worry", in the impression of mother Zhao Genfeng, she has never cried because of training hardships because of injuries, "She is a very strong girl, her love for badminton has never changed, and she has always insisted." ”
There is a family portrait in the living room, placed in the most prominent position, which was taken by a family of three after winning the Sudirman Cup in May this year. Chen Yufei has been busy with training competitions, and her days back home are numbered, and the family can only meet through video most of the time. "The next meeting should be when she is playing, and we will go to the scene to watch the game and cheer her on." They said.
"I hope she will let go of her burden, turn it into motivation, and cheer for the Asian Games"
On August 15 this year, Chen Yufei, wearing the dress of the opening ceremony of the Chinese sports delegation of the Hangzhou Asian Games, appeared in everyone's field of vision with a new image.
As a native of Hangzhou, this year's Asian Games will be of great significance to Chen Yufei, who admits that she is both stressed and looking forward to it. "I hope she can do well in this Asian Games." Father Chen Zhe said.
"The Asian Games at her doorstep will also be a lot of pressure for her, I hope she can let go of the baggage, turn into motivation, have a good performance, come on!" Mother Zhao Genfeng cheers for her daughter.
Parents are looking forward to the Hangzhou Asian Games, Yufei will have time to go home and reunite and take another family photo.
