Zhou Jiamin and Wang Hao, athletes from Zhejiang and Liaoning provinces, were announced to be the two flag bearers of the Chinese sports delegation to the Paralympic Games, on August 23.
Ying Shiqin, Zhou's mother said she was so happy and nervous to learn that her daughter would be the flag bearer to Paralympic Games. "My daughter works hard on everything," Ying said. "She can speak fluent English and a little Japanese. I think that's maybe the reason she was chosen."
Ying also expressed her expectations for the Paralympic Games. "I look forward to seeing the Chinese national flag flying high on the opening ceremony on Aug 24. I wish the Chinese delegation excellent results in the Paralympic Games."
