The spirit of the Chinese women's volleyball team 

The Chinese women's volleyball team is known for its tenacity, teamwork, pursuit of excellence and unyielding spirit.

From 1981 to 1986 the team won five consecutive world championships, earning glory for the nation and creating a collective memory for Chinese people old and young. Their spirit has inspired numerous people and remains a symbol of sporting excellence. Of course, no team can be always victorious in the sporting arena. They have on occasion lost matches and experienced failures. However, the players have never lost faith, but girded their loins and prepared for the next challenge. 

In September 2019, the team successfully defended their status as World Cup champions. This was their 10th successful world championship. In his congratulatory telegram, President Xi Jinping praised the team for displaying once again their traditional teamwork and indomitable spirit in competing with every strong rival.

The team's influence on the Chinese nation has transcended the volleyball court, and their spirit has inspired people from every sector of society to continue their endeavors in their fields.
