It is indeed a great honour for anyone to have a chance to win an award in the Olympic Games.
The whole country would cheer when one is awarded a medal.
Behind the success are sacrifices and tears of hardship since young for many of these athletes.
Most of these kids in the video above may have lost their childhood.
Many may wonder whether these medals are really something these kids want if they are given a choice.
As teachers and parents, we can feel the misery of these children especially when we see how much our own children are enjoying their childhood.
It is something parents must consider whether it is really a healthy development for these kids to go through daily intense training without the precious memories of how childhood can be.
