I practiced it for a week.”Every time Li song learns a new movement, he is faced with difficulties beyond ordinary people, and his efforts are multiplied.However, when asked how he persevered in the face of such setbacks, he replied: “These are setbacks, but nothing compared to the two years when I was ill.People who climb out of extreme inferiority are extremely strong.”Relying on the spirit of “benben birds fly first”, Li Songyuan has paid more than normal people to support his love of extreme sports.In ski circles, he is known by the name asso.Once established the largest ski club in Weifang, represented Weifang in the first and second winter National Games of Shandong Province, and became the national professional ski instructor and the first snowboard waxing division.He started from The Weifang Tuo Mountain ski resort, step by step to the Olympic Games “snow ruyi”.For the end of the Winter Olympics, Li Song felt a little sad, but more is infinite expectations.”After the Winter Olympics, I feel like I can think of anything.This Winter Olympics in China hatched the growth of freestyle skiing, may be more than ten years can not reach, can be said to be a history of the express train.”Li attributed his achievement to The Times. “It’s cool and lucky to catch this train in my life.”
