China will participate in the World Athletics Championships of August with full quotas in race walking event, showing its strong strength.

The women's throwing events made new breakthroughs

The women's throwing events of China had an outstanding performance at London Olympic Games, with Li Yanfeng winning a silver medal for women's discus throw, Gong Lijiao winning a bronze medal for women's shot put, Zhang Wenxiu winning the fourth place for women's hammer throw and Lu Huihui winning the fifth place for women's javelin throw.

Lu had got a result of 64.95 meters in the women's javelin throw event in April 2012, breaking the Asian record, and many other girls also got a better achievement than A-class standard of Olympic Games. The outstanding players of women's javelin throw event are now very young and will be in their golden age when they participate in the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, so they are very promising.

According to Chinese Athletics Association, Chinese players also have potential strength in such events as high jump, long jump, triple jump and pole vault events, so they must step up efforts to strive for new breakthroughs.

Echelon construction has taken shape

In recent years, the Chinese Athletics Association has been increasing efforts to train more teenagers, and the echelon construction has taken shape.

With the combination of sports and education, it established 12 national junior teams including six race walking teams.

In addition, it also set up a platform to cultivate the reserves and established amateur leagues, providing a platform of communication and improvement for middle and primary school teachers and coaches loving athletics events.
