On July 23, the Tokyo 2020 Olympics opened with participation from 11,000 athletes, who had been waiting for these Games for five years due to the pandemic. Xinhua reporters have been following and shooting seven Chinese Olympians for one and a half years, keeping track of how they lived, thought, dreamed about, and trained for the Olympic Games. In order to get to where they are, they have overcome pain, inertia, fear and homesickness, with a strong belief that the light at the end of the tunnel will burn brighter.
