January 17, 2020 |

Putuo athlete Shao Yijun won a gold and a silver medal in the bobsleigh at the recent 14th National Winter Games.

Previously a shot put athlete, Shao moved to bobsleigh in 2015 and was the first sportsman from Putuo to participate in the Winter Olympics.

Earlier in 2019, Shao and his teammate also made it to the final in the bobsleigh championship in Canada, which was also a groundbreaking record for Chinese sports.

Shao said that he would continue to work hard and spare no effort for the upcoming Beijing Winter Olympics in 2022.
