On September 10, the one-year countdown to the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games began. Internationals living in Yiwu expressed their love for sports and their expectations for the coming Asian Games, hoping to watch the games in person.
“I come from India and I like basketball, football, badminton, and other sports. I have been in Yiwu for 18 years. I used to watch the Asian Games on TV. I hope this time I have the opportunity to watch the Asian Games in Hangzhou with my friends.”
“I am from Kyrgyzstan. Running, tennis, and cycling are my favorite sports, but especially swimming. I have been in Yiwu for three years. After graduating from Yiwu Industrial & Commercial College, I have been working in foreign trade. I really hope to visit Hangzhou and watch the games.”
“I come from Indonesia and used to be a member of the Indonesian national badminton team. Now I work in a badminton club in Yiwu. It would be great if I can get the chance to watch badminton competitions next year.” (By Gong Yan, Fu Jianping, translated by Liziyi, edited by Kendra Fiddler)
