At the London Olympics games, post 90s generation shined. However, what is not known behind the gold medals is a childhood filled with blood and tears. Look at these little faces with tears, hands and feet covered in scars, worn exercise bars and training pants, do you feel the pain?
Little body not yet fully developed being forcefully stepped on everyday.
The tearing little faces are easily seen in the training room.
Hold back tears and practice.
Kids endure pain and practice.
Behind them is coach with “the ruler”.
Must finish even with crying.
Four “little bats” hanging there and resting.
Work those abs.
Training pants that were worn out,
Worn exercise bars
Socks with holes. In order to point the toes, kids need to painfully walk on their toes everyday.
Childhood of handstands
The huge character "gold" is posted on the wall, glowing red and blazing, it has been burned into the hearts of the young children. "There is always a dream, but only a few children will last, most parents feel sorry for their kids (and stop the training), so many good seedlings are buried like that." Coach said with pity “If a child can successfully go down this road, we have to thank his/her parents the most for persisting."
