He lives in Jiangyang District. He graduated from Luzhou High School and is currently a junior student of investigation College of China Public Security University.This year, 107 undergraduates from The Public Security University of China formed a flag-carrying performance team to undertake the task of flag-carrying and flag-waving during the opening session of the Winter Olympics.Wu Yuhang had the honor to serve as the flag bearer of Latvia’s sports delegation.”The school received a notice to select a volunteer flag bearer last September, and I applied as soon as possible.”Wu yuhang said that in his freshman year, after training, he was selected to become a flag bearer in the mass parade to salute the formation of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China, and this experience made him unforgettable.The registration as Beijing Winter Olympics flag bearer, Wu Yuhang knows that responsibility is also significant.”As a flag bearer, the height of the body, appearance, behavior and other aspects of the requirements are very strict, to show the world in front of the Chinese youth confident and high spirit.”The reporter learned that the Winter Olympics flag bearer has strict requirements, among which the height of 1.80 meters is the most basic requirement.Wu yuhang is 1.86 meters tall and weighs 75 kilograms.The journey from signing up to standing at the opening ceremony was not easy.Wu yuhang recalled that their training began in September last year. In order not to miss the daily lessons, the flag-bearers attended the training in the school’s training hall all day on Saturday and Sunday.What kind of training do you do?Wu yuhang introduced that during the training, the flagpole of the flag bearer is a solid metal pole with a length of three meters. To make the flagpole stand upright during the marching process, the flag bearer has high requirements.In order to enhance her physical strength, wu yuhang and her classmates practiced long-distance running, push-ups, sit-ups, back training, legs training and abdominal training with bare hands.”The hardest thing was that at the beginning of the training, the amount of physical training was huge, and I was exhausted after every training. I had to take classes the next day after weekend training, so my schedule was so tight that my hands were shaking the next day when I had dinner.”‘Fortunately, after more than four months of intensive training thousands of times, they finally made a clean and orderly presentation at the Opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics,’ Wu said.The opening of the Winter Olympics coincides with the Lunar New Year holiday, which for most of the students involved in the flag-flying mission will be the first Spring Festival away from their families.Wu yuhang is the only child in his family. He has returned to Luzhou to spend the Spring Festival with his family every year since he entered college. This is the first time he has not spent the Spring Festival in Luzhou.”The most impressive day is January 30, we went to the bird’s Nest early in the morning and didn’t finish training until the early morning of January 31.It was New Year’s Eve and I was very tired, but everyone was very excited.”Wu yuhang said that although the Spring Festival was not able to return home to reunite with his family, it was also full of unique meaning and it was an experience he would never forget.Wu’s father, Wu Jiang, told reporters that his son served as the flag bearer for the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China in his freshman year, and the whole family felt very proud, which was the result of his son’s efforts.After signing up as a volunteer flag bearer for the Winter Olympics, they have been encouraging their son to train well.Wu Yuhang was only 7 years old when his father took him to watch the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Although he didn’t know much about it, he knew it was a big event for China.This time, wu jiang and his wife were happy to know that their son was included in the final list.On February 4, the day of the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics, wu and his wife invited some friends to watch the live broadcast and tried to find their son on TV. Although they did not see him in the end, they still felt happy.Wu is still in Beijing and will begin his internship tour next.Wu has his own plans for the future. “I will join the public security force after graduation and continue to contribute to the new post,” he said.(Chuan Jiang Metropolis Daily reporter Peng Fangjun)
