Introducing the First female Chinese IFBB Pro.
There are many cultural differences between Western countries and China. In my country, it's very difficult to be accepted as a Fitness competitor. They think that you are way too big for a woman and they whisper around you. So it's not a very comfortable feeling that I lived with the last 12 years. A lot of people don't understand this life style, some don't even know what a "gym" is. It wasn't easy to train and evolve in this environment but I wanted to show other people that " you can do it too". The last five years were the most difficult. I wasn't sure if I wanted to continue this lifestyle. I tried "Cross Fit" and "Grappling" and had very good results in competitions in both disciplines. Last winter I competed in the IFBB world Championship and I didn't place well at all. So I wondered if it was time to retire and focus on the other disciplines. But I took it as a challenge. Like when a fighter needs to fight to test his skills. I put 100% of my time in my fitness training. So I told my friends that I would compete in the Arnold Classic and bring back a trophy. Three months later, I won the Arnold Classic Amateur. Then I became the first female Chinese IFBB pro. The media started to talk about it and people started to understand this art form. It's a good start I think. Now I try to use the support and positive energy of my fans to train harder. We have a lot of talented athletes here who want to compete professionally and it's an honor to be the one to make pave the way for them. Now I'm so grateful and excited for my first pro show in Vancouver. Here I come. I will bring my own style, not only for the #Vancouverpro show but for all the people that supported me over the years. My dream when I started to compete more than a decade ago was to be on The Olympia stage. But it was just a dream, so far from my reach, impossible to grasp. Now I almost there. Never give up your dream! ✈️🔥#vancouverpro #ifbbfigurepro #chinafitness #nevergiveup #dreamer #olympia2017 #VANPROAM #nikewomen #nike
