The latest Olympic hero for China is not even a gold medalist. Air Max 270 Schweiz .Fu Yuanhui is popular for simply being herself -- unafraid to show her unfiltered, wacky facial expressions and candid words.Her smile lit up the deck as she took a victory lap with the bronze medal around her neck for her performance in the 100-meter backstroke. She didnt care that it wasnt gold, even if her country has long pushed athletes to get to the top of the podium.As if to prove the point, she thanked herself.I want to tell myself that ... your perseverance and efforts in the past have not been in vain, Fu said. Though I didnt win first place, I have already surpassed myself.Her candor -- paired with animated facial expressions -- is a rarity among Chinese elite athletes, who have spent so much time in the rigid state sport system that their vocabulary is often robotically limited by the state parlance that puts the countrys honor and national pride first.Just six years ago, a senior Chinese official chided short-track speedskater Zhou Yang for failing to thank the country first and only mentioning her parents after winning gold in the 1,500-meter event at the Vancouver Olympics.For decades, the Chinese public has been obsessed with Olympic gold medals but turned their nose up on anything less than the top spot on the podium. They even were downright cruel to athletes who failed to win gold and considered it a shame to come only second.The adoration piled upon Fu as her followers on social media swelled to nearly 5 million from 56,000 this week, the latest sign that China is moving away from the gold-medal mentality and starting to respect sportsmanship and athletes as individuals.The Chinese society has indeed changed. We still have the collective desire to remain first-class in the world, but we are respecting individual rights, opined the state-run newspaper Global Times -- known for its nationalistic stance -- on Fus soaring popularity.Although Fu Yuanhui is an exception, it marks changes in the generation of younger athletes. The echoing applause by the Chinese public marks a shift in the societal awareness, wrote the editorial, suggesting that Chinas politics is partly to be blamed for the restraints and reservation often exhibited by Chinese athletes.Born in an average family in the prospering eastern Chinese city of Hangzhou, Fu began to swim at 5 when her parents hoped the water exercise could improve her health and alleviate her asthma, according to a 2015 Chinese media report. Her talent emerged, and the girl was recruited into the municipal swimming team. Considered a genius in the pool, Fu competed in London but came home empty-handed. Unabashed, she reportedly joked she had drunk enough of the foot-washing water of other swimmers.Fu apparently has not considered the Olympic gold a must in her swimming career, a departure from state athletes who are tasked with winning for the sake of the country.On her 20th birthday in January, she posted this on her social media account: I know for what I live. I know the kind of life I want. Its simple. Joy. Loving Heart. Gratitude.This is what I want. Being outstanding or not, it does not matter.Her parents also put no pressure on her.We set no goal for her, but whats important is to enjoy the process and to be happy, her father, Fu Chunsheng, told local media in 2013. But theres one principle that she should feel no regret when she looks back on this experience after 10 years.It doesnt look like she will. The swimmer claimed she used primordial force in Rio, and the term became an instant meme in Chinas social media. And her exaggerated expression of surprise in learning her speed has gone viral:Incredible. I am that fast? she said. I am very satisfied. Air Max 270 Herren Schweiz . Fernandez, coached in Toronto by former two-time Olympic silver medallist Brian Orser, scored 267.11 points and is the first champion to successfully defend since Russias Evgeny Plushenko in 2005 and 2006. Air Max 270 Günstig Kaufen . Olli Jokinen, Mark Scheifele, and Bryan Little each had a goal and an assist as Winnipeg won 5-2, handing Calgary its record-setting seventh consecutive loss on home ice. http://www.schweizairmax270.ch/ ., and Rudi Swiegers of Kipling, Sask., took sixth spot on Saturday in pairs at the NHK Trophy ISU Grand Prix figure skating competition.Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri is confident his players can continue their heroics in the final weeks of the campaign and deliver the title. The Foxes require eight points from their last four Premier League fixtures to be crowned champions of England for the first time in the clubs history.Victory over Swansea on Sunday, live on Sky Sports, would put pressure on second-placed Tottenham ahead of their match against West Brom on Monday, also live on Sky Sports. Leicester will be without top scorer Jamie Vardy for the next two games as he serves suspension and, although the striker has been a vital part of the teams success this season, Ranieri insists his entire squad have played their part. Riyad Mahrez in action for Leicester against West Ham Without our goalscorer, it is not easy to play, Ranieri said. We give, every time, the maximum but I am sure we will give a little more to win the match.I think I have 24 stars. I have 24 Caesars - that is our strength. There isnt one Caesar but there are the other 23.Ranieri believes Algeria international Riyad Mahrez can be a key figure for the team in the league run in though.Mahrez has scored juust three goals in his last 17 games but he did grab a hat-trick in Leicesters 3-0 win at Swansea in December, and Ranieri believes the midfielder has the potential to guide the team over the line. Günstige Air Max 270 Schweiz. Claudio Ranieri has backed Leicester Citys Caesars He is fantastic. Riyad is our light, the Italian added. When he switches on, wow, Leicester change colour - that is the truth.Meanwhile, Leonardo Ulloa, whose stoppage-time penalty salvaged a point in a 2-2 draw with West Ham last weekend, is expected to deputise for Vardy, and Ranieri knows the team has to adapt.Without Vardy we have to make some other strategy, Ranieri said. Leo deserves to play but before Leo there is the team and I think about what is the best for the team.Youll see on Sunday. We have to change something. With Jamie, everyone knows his movement. It could be a change of formation or players. I wont tell you. Also See: Henrys title race verdict World is talking about Foxes Leicesters nerves jangling Vardy loss will impact Foxes ' ' '
