Wang Chunyu

The Chinese Sports Delegation to the Hangzhou Asian Games consists of 886 athletes (437 female athletes and 449 male athletes), including 36 Olympic champions. Among them, 67 have participated in the Rio Olympics, 201 in the Tokyo Olympics, 226 in the previous Jakarta Asian Games, and 630 are participating in the Asian Games for the first time.

The average age of the athletes in the Chinese Sports Delegation is 25 years old. Among the 28 athletes from Anhui who are participating in the Hangzhou Asian Games, the leading figures include the women's 800 meters runner Wang Chunyu. She won fifth place in the women's 800 meters final at the Tokyo Olympics with a time of 1 minute and 57 seconds. In the 2018 Jakarta Asian Games, Wang Chunyu won the championship with a time of 2 minutes and 1.80 seconds. We also look forward to her defending her title in the Hangzhou Asian Games.

In addition, Anhui player Lan Minghao will also compete in the men's epee competition at the Hangzhou Asian Games. In the men's epee team competition at the 2018 Jakarta Asian Games, the Chinese team sent Lan Minghao, Dong Chao, and Shi Gaofeng to compete. As a result, the Chinese team was defeated by the Japanese team 22-30 and won the runner-up.

In the traditional Anhui advantage project of handball, there are three men and five women selected for the Chinese national team. Anhui tennis star Zhu Lin will also compete in the women's singles tennis at the Hangzhou Asian Games. In 2023, Zhu Lin defeated players such as Jil Belén Teichmann and Maria Sakkari at the Australian Open, achieving her first victory over a Top 10 player, and her world ranking also entered the TOP 50 for the first time.

It is worth mentioning that four esports players from Anhui were also selected for the national team this time. They will show their skills in games such as Honor of Kings and League of Legends.
