2015 B men’s ice hockey world championships in South Africa Group B match ended, the Chinese team than 7 Halo 3 easily beat hosts South Africa, which won five straight victories, after a lapse of four years to return to Serie B in group A (equivalent Worlds Race 4 levels). Last night, this reporter to contact the Chinese ice hockey team leader in South Africa in the days of the German long-distance telephone and through the body. He recalled that when the game is still very excited, “This is the Chinese team in recent years, played the most beautiful race!”
As one of the oldest sports in China, “fighting spirit,” said a team of Chinese men and 34 years ago, the ice into the world championships in group B, but shortly after the record landslide. Reid said in the days, the team won overwhelmed liters group is not easy, but the road to recovery is still long Chinese men’s ice hockey, “domestic athletics hockey foundation is weak, reserve personnel shortage, the need for policy, social forces, and many other support.”
Past: Male ice bring “hockey hot”
In March 1981, during the World Championship Group C match male ice, which can accommodate 18,000 people in the Capital Gymnasium almost sold out games, 11 days schedule a total of 30 million people watch the games scene, hot scene. At that time, the Chinese men won the runner-up and the first cut ice Group B, the sense of “hockey fever” has swept the capital, the impact of the country.
German memories of the days, the 1970s and 1980s, the Chinese hockey good momentum of development, the three northeastern provinces, Inner Mongolia, Xinjiang, Beijing and other places have ice hockey team. “Long northern winter, outdoor ice rink than a few schools, factories often organized hockey when there are more than ten domestic professional support team.”
But since then, due to collective projects such puck into large, slow, a lot of places to cancel the ice hockey team, in turn develop into a small, quick-impact projects. Hockey team and shrinking population, only Heilongjiang and Jilin provinces have a small amount of a few teams barely.
“Small team, no game, unable to raise the level of achievement decline, reducing investment in all aspects. Coaches and players living in poor conditions, where there are people who want to play?” In the days of Germany that, due to the brain drain too fast, lack of reserve forces, Chinese male ice has quit the ranks of Asian teams.
Status: The days have borne Baba
Currently, the domestic men’s ice hockey team remaining in Harbin, Qiqihar, Jiamusi three professional teams and the only adult club team Beijing Hao Thai team. “Professional team of days have borne Baba, to a lesser extent of Harbin and Qiqihar have some team building, but GuoZiHao far failed to meet the needs of the team.” Reid said on the day.
“Hockey training alone will not do the project, a team want to improve performance, at least a year to be comparable to the strength or stronger opponents play a lot of games. But few domestic hockey team simply did not make up the domestic league.” In the days of the German introduction, Chinese male ice recent performance rebounded slightly, thanks to participate in the Asian Hockey League, “often with strong adversaries, improve faster.”
In order to encourage the country to carry out ice hockey, the provisions of the State Sports General Administration, 2012 National Winter Games ice hockey championship team received increased to three gold medals. However, the New Deal did not play for the local sports department stimulation.
Beijing Hao Thai team was founded in 2009, although the nature of the club, but the rapid progress early this year to represent China in the World University Winter Games. The club investors Zhang Yuan (microblogging data) be very happy, but he also has a lot of frustration, “due to financial and other constraints, we can maintain the status quo has not easy.”
Future: Policy hope to get through the crux
In recent years, domestic cities off the teenagers’ hockey hot. ” Beijing, for example, the just-concluded 7th City Youth Hockey League a total of five age groups, Detachment 96, more than a thousand players to participate, the scale creating the most ever.
However, the mass base is still hard to get into hockey competitive level selection purposes. Right now, the city’s number of elementary schools, junior ice hockey team has been formed, but the high school and college hockey is still blank. “Unless study abroad, otherwise the child to school will not be able to display their hockey skills, forced to give up.”, Said on the day Germany.
In his view, the Chinese hockey Ruoyu system development, policy is the primary factor. “On the one hand, to strengthen the body to teach hockey programs combine to encourage college and high school hockey team formation. In addition, to establish a more professional team, to create a domestic league.”
Zhang Yuan believes that China needs more hockey to support social forces, “is not one we can hold up to government, business and society must join forces to jointly build a broader platform.” He said, Beijing actively bid for 2022 Winter Olympics will be the Chinese hockey important development opportunities.
Secretary-General of Beijing Liu Ge Hockey Association, said the current situation, in order to enhance the strength of Chinese hockey, achieve goals at home to participate in the Winter Olympics, “need help system, mainly policy, such as sports and education sector collaboration, Sports Students enrolled in colleges and universities should also consider the child to play hockey. ”
According to the Beijing Municipal Education Commission relevant responsible person said, the education sector is preparing teaching materials, so that the Winter Olympics of knowledge into the school curriculum, support qualified schools to promote winter sports.
