China has worked on improving its performance in every kind of sports to get most, if not all, of the gold medals at every international championship. But to get here, one has to have a strategy. Certain countries spontaneously specialize in certain sports and if they become leaders in one, they hold on to it for a long time. What football is for Brazil and Spain, running is for Kenya and Ethiopia. But in the early 90’s, China realized that there were less professional female runners coming from these countries than men, which led them to focus on this specific sport. Peasant girls trained hard, for some of them it was the only opportunity to have proper education and a good life. And some of them did indeed make it. The success stories began in 1993, when the “Ma Family Army”, a group of girls including Wang Junxia and Qu Yunxia led by coach Ma Junren, won six medals including three golds at the World Championships in Stuttgart. Ever since then, an army of foreign coaches help China to train their running champions. The motivation is, however, not wealth, but the possibility of becoming a national heroine. [Andras Gal]
