Chinese Sports Documentary Gains Global Recognition

By Zhenyu Li On September - 25 - 2012

When it comes to sports, China has always been a major player on the global field and has had the unique privilege of standing next to, or even above, the No.1 sports power—the United States on the Olympic podium.
