A dream come true for Chinese Paralympian Zhu Dening_china.org.cn

One gold, one silver and a new world record. That's the performance Zhu Dening managed to deliver at his Paralympic debut in Tokyo.

"I want to become a teacher after graduation. I want to share my experience as a Paralympian with more people and pass on the values of sportsmanship," said Zhu, a student athlete majoring in physical education at Jimei University in Xiamen.

Born in 1999 in southeast China's Fujian Province, Zhu, who has suffered from mild ataxia since childhood, moved to Xiamen with his parents at a young age.

In 2015, with the support of the Xiamen Disabled Persons' Federation, Zhu began to train in track and field with coach Yang Xiaoping. Since making his debut for China in 2018, Zhu has won championships at many levels.
