China has built its charactistic system to win many Olympic gold medals as a way to gain the esteem from the world.  But the sports's most fundamental function is to relax peopel and building a healthy body , which is far beyond the golds  medals in competition.
we always say "friendship is the first primary followed by the competition".  when china show off its dizzy golds, there are many chinese civilians who can not afford a pair of sport shoes. In the remote rural areas, a hign school even don't have any fitness facilities.
So what is the meaning of those gold medals.
When the Chinese team won the gold medels of swordplay, how many people in china have any experience of the swordplay? how many have any experiences of diving when China'S Diving TEAM is called a Dream Team


China Daily
Editor's note: The decades-old juguo system in China has helped China win many Olympic glories, but the price for this Olympics-oriented sport system is also extremely high. After the triumph in the Beijing Olympic Games, we should shift our focus to popular sports and return the sports to its original essence.

Zheng Yefu gets passionate when he talks about sports. The Peking University's professor of sociology is nearing 60 but he is still an avid sportsman. He is an excellent swimmer and jogs regularly. He is a prominent sport commentator, too.

Since the Department of Sociology was under renovation, Zheng suggested the interview with China Daily take place in a temporary office in Peking University Gymnasium, one of the 37 venues of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. This is where China's table tennis team won four gold medals. In this very gymnasium, Zheng talked about how to dismantle China's Olympics-oriented sport system and build a more complete structure.

Chinese people call the Olympics-driven system juguo tizhi (whole nation regime). The State spends staggering sums of money on specialized athletes, coaches, officials and other staff in order to win as many medals as possible at the Olympics, Asian Games and other regional and international tournaments.

Where Sport starts to be on high performance level, it has already exceeded any healthy level.
It's taking part that counts.
Atletes from most other Nations have to work in regular jobs besides being an atlete, to make their living.
They do the Sports on spare money or spare time, what are the medals worth if won in such an unfair competition?

Competition: Yes please, but in a reasonable, joyful and fair manner.
No to exploitation of Atletes and the human body itself.
Lets go back into the policy of having only complete Amateurs participating in Olympic Games.
Enjoy Cheerful and fair Competition.
