Readers: Are we obsessed with winning?

The Chinese delegation has been put on too much pressure, which is unfair to all hard-working athletes. As a Chinese, I cannot agree with our popular perception of the honor of Olympic games. A gold medal is not everything. Think about those players who lost the gold but tried their best, most people do not show friendly compassion to them, but even lightly blame them, and I was one of these people. I have to take this occasion to apologize for my behavior. Don't create unreasonable pressure, you are not the one playing the game!
