CCTV News:On July 28th, China team won a bronze medal in women’s three-person basketball, a new Olympic event. This event was selected for the Olympic Games because many people all over the world have a special love for this sport. In Da Lang, which is known as the "hometown of basketball" in Dongguan, Guangdong Province, Luo Xiangjian, a basketball player, lost his right leg by accident at the age of 5, but this did not affect his obsession with basketball. Everyone called him a "one-legged basketball fighter".
Luo Xiangjian:I am still optimistic by nature, and I have not been affected too much by this incident since I was a child. On the one hand, my family gave me a lot of encouragement, on the other hand, I encouraged myself. On the other hand, my teachers and classmates have given me a lot of strength and encouragement. Although I lost a leg, I think others can do it, and I can certainly do it.
When I was in junior high school, my PE teacher told me that I could actually stand on a higher stage to show myself, so I would train according to his requirements every day. I still remember the first time I touched basketball. When I hit the first ball, I felt very happy. I can do it, and I can do it. Through basketball, I met different friends.
Luo Xiangjian:Personally, I think basketball is like a bridge, and I am the one who walks by it. When I walk on the bridge, I will see many people coming and going. You can not only win the game, but also lose the game, and enjoy the atmosphere.
If nothing happens, I will insist on playing basketball every day. Although I can’t play professionally, I still love basketball. I think I can love basketball in my own way. As long as I hit the ball in my own way, I am enjoying this sport.
Luo Xiangjian:I didn’t think that I could do a career like basketball before, but I had such an opportunity last year, so I came to Dongguan, Guangdong Province, and I came to Da Lang, the hometown of basketball, to take up my favorite job in basketball. I have always insisted on standing on the court, hoping to pass this energy on to more people, and also hoping to infect some children around me, hoping that they can continue to maintain their love and keep their original heart, and hope that they can stand on a bigger stage.
Luo Xiangjian:When we love basketball to the extreme, we always hope to have our own stadium and many friends on it. This is my wish, just like home. Everyone has a different understanding of basketball, but I hope that through my own understanding of basketball, I can tell others that I love it so much, I like it so much, encourage them, I can do it, and you can certainly do it.
