1. What achievements has Gu made?

In March, the 17-year-old won gold medals in the halfpipe and slopestyle events, as well as a bronze medal during the women’s Big Air event, at the International Ski Federation (FIS) Snowboard and Freeski World Championships in Aspen, US, which made her the first Chinese freeskier to win multiple medals at the world championships.

2. What incident shows her perseverance?

Just a few weeks before the championship, Gu broke her hand. This meant that for the first time, she would be unable to use her poles. While this made the star athlete uncomfortable, she persevered. “Today I was really feeling it. It’s so amazing. I’m really excited to come back and show the world I can ski well even with this,” Gu told FIS after her victory.

3. What is her goal?

“For me personally, my goal is to win Olympic gold. That to me is just representative of excellence in sport; it’s the top achievement undisputedly,” Gu said in an interview on the official website of the International Olympic Committee.

4. Why is participating in the Games important to Gu?

“I am thinking more of the Olympics as a way to bring it [the sport] to other people. Any pressure comes from myself, ... it more just drives me and makes me excited and motivated, and makes me realize how important skiing is to me and how much I want to spread it to others,” Gu told CGTN.

Possible version:
In the 1980s, Lang Ping and her volleyball teammates trained relentlessly and made dramatic improvement. In the Beijing Olympics, the US team, led by Lang, was against the Chinese team, led by Lang's former coaching partner and longtime friend, Chen Zhonghe. After Lang's return from the US, she served as head coach for the Chinese women's national volleyball team and led the team to many historic victories.
