Olympic 2016 in Rio is hosting like a raging fire. Recently, swimming and ping pong context is a hot topic, especially for China, a country who is always good at sports like swimming, diving and ping pong. How good China could be in those contests? Let’s put it this way, you can always see the first prize goes to Chinese competitors, even the top three all go to the Chinese competitors, and still no one can break this cycle yet. It is like the prizes of those contests are belong to, or maybe exclusive to Chinese competitors. But every coin has two sides, it shines the glory on China but would be a great burden for Chinese competitors. Like the swimming contest recently, Sun yang, a well known swimmer who is very good at what he does and always gets the first prize and enjoys the winner glory all the time. In the 400m freestyle, very unexpectedly, he failed to get the first prize and became the second place. Under the great pressure of winner, he could not help but weeping about his poor performance, at least he thought or some Chinese people thought that. Experience like Sun yang really raises some questions and provokes some deep thought.
Modern Olympic Games or Olympics was inspired by the ancient Olympic Games, which were held in Olympia, Greece, from the 8th century BC to the 4th century AD. Baron Pierre de Coubertin founded the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in 1894. The IOC is the governing body of the Olympic Movement, with the Olympic Charter defining its structure and authority. As the days goes by, Olympics becomes more like a show, people become more craving for the prizes instead of enjoying the sport participation and true spirit of sport. People who possess the thought of winning instead of enjoying will distort the true purpose of the Olympics game and need to get on the right track.
No doubt, regular people like us are not qualified to attend Olympics competition. But it does not mean that we are not able to enjoy the true spirit of Olympics—everyone deserves the possibility of being engaged in sports without any forms of discrimination, and to enjoy the Olympics spirit of understanding, friendship, solidarity and fair competition. Instead of sitting in front of TV watching other’s competition, what we really should do is to exercise ourselves. Here’s a suggestion of group sport playing, bubble soccer game. Bubble football or bubble soccer is the recreation or sport of playing football whilst encased in an inflated torus, similar to a zorb, which covers the player’s upper-body and head with only legs sticking out. The game is usually played indoors in a sports hall, or outdoors on grass or AstroTurf. The sport is becoming increasingly popular, with many people all over the world taking it up. Bubble soccer can be played by anyone over the age of 10 and is often played amongst friends, for corporate team building days, stag parties, bachelor parties, and birthdays. There are also many variations of bubble football, with scenarios such as bubble bowling or bubble sumo also taking place at bubble soccer venues. Some venues can be rented-out, and bubble football companies exist which set up events at other locations. If you get tired of ordinary sport, bubble soccer game is a perfect inventive, team building and excited game for you.
