The team consecutively won four other laurels – the 1982 and 1986 World Championships, the first gold medal awarded at the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles and the 1985 edition of the FIVB Womens World Cup. These five victories together are considered to be a great achievement in Chinese sports history. The team has won a total of 10 world championships so far, but behind this glory is a bittersweet rollercoaster that saw the team reach its prime during the 1980s, enter a valley period from 2009 to 2012 and then rise again after 2013. This revitalization of the team saw “Iron Hammer” Lang Ping take charge of coaching duties, and it was during this time that she won her first world championship as the teams head coach. The shoes of volleyball players Lang Ping, Yang Xi and Zhou Xiaolan worn in the year of 1981 Photo:ICThough their first gold medal was won way back in 1981, the much-admired Chinese womans volleyball team still gets applause and attention. More than 100 million of netizens have celebrated the 39th anniversary of the teams first world championship on Chinas Twitter-like Sina Weibo. Netizens shared their feelings and posted about their admiration for the spirit of the Chinese womens volleyball team. “I still get excited and feel deeply touched after watching them in 1981,” one netizen commented.  “The spirit of the Chinese womens volleyball team has transcended, passing from one generation to the next,” commented another. Qualities such as perseverance, never giving up, diligence and fearlessness are ideas that define the spirit of the Chinese womens volleyball team as well as Chinas national spirit,” wrote another. “I recommend the film called Leap, again! The Chinese womens volleyball spirit has modern and new interpretations in the film,” they added. The recent film Leap, starring Chinese actress Gong Li as Lang Ping, recounts the sweat and sacrifice of the Chinese womens volleyball team over more than three decades. The film also inspired netizens to express their thoughts on Sina Weibo. “I could hear the guy beside me cry in the cinema,” one netizen noted, and “Great sports films always show something more than the sport itself, it reflects a generation,” said another. “Next year will be the 40th anniversary, I cant wait to see it arrive,” a netizen posted on Weibo to express the excitement about the upcoming anniversary to mark the Chinese womens volleyball team to win their first world championship. RELATED ARTICLES:School in Shandong carries out various sports activities during longer class breaksWind tunnel boosts China’s winter sports hopes Russia takes 4-year doping ban battle to top sports courtPosted in: CULTURE & LEISURE,TOUCH OF WARMTHvar wxs = (function() {return navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase().indexOf(micromessenger) !== -1})();if (!wxs) {/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var disqus_shortname = globaltimes; // required: replace example with your forum shortnamevar disqus_identifier = 1207008;/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function () {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = https:// + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();}Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.blog comments powered by Disqusload_file(“/includes/channel_right.html”);load_file(“/includes/footer.html”);$(document).ready(function($){$(“#channel-list .row-content”).each(function(){  if($(this).children().length==1){$(this).children().css(width,100%);}
