The Chinese women's volleyball team was especially emphasised for their spirit. They were winners at the  Bucharest 1981 Summer Universiade, and went onto win gold in six editions of the summer Games, including three consecutive ones in 1999, 2001 and 2003.


The children were inspired by their stories and encouragement.
