‘We Achieved Our Goals’: Liang Qiao on Preperation for Upcoming Chinese National Championships

This week the Chinese National Team held an internal test at the National Training Center in Beijing, where gymnasts showed off routines and upgrades they hope to compete at the upcoming Chinese National Championships in Zhaoqing later this month.


National Team head coach, Liang Qiao talked to reporters about upcoming plans:


“It was very very tricky. I went around the world to get here. First I got into Shanghai then I had to quarantine there, afterward I was able to travel to Beijing. When I got here I came to see everyone very happy. Today’s test we achieved our goal. Some athletes were in better condition than others, but the falls and mistakes were expected, these tests can help us prepare for National Championships. Most importantly it is to help the top contenders prepare for next year’s Tokyo Olympic Games.”
