This is the fruit of China folk veneer for 20 years. At the beginning of the 21st century, this trendy sport, which started in North America, began to have the first group of folk fans in China. Most of them used to be double-board professional athletes or snow friends. They began to grope for learning, playing, building venues, holding competitions and training by relying on foreign video materials that helped each other and were not rich in resources. At the beginning of this circle, it was not big. Almost everyone knew Xiaoming and watched Xiaoming grow up.
Su Yiming’s hometown, Jilin City, Jilin Province, is blessed with ice and snow resources. Xiaoming, born in 2004, has been brought to the snow by his parents since he was two or three years old, and has cultivated an excellent sense of snow. Although it didn’t take long for "Brother Ming" to become the "ceiling" in China, he went abroad for training, communication and finding famous teachers, it is undeniable that the rise of folk veneer in China was the soil for Su Yiming’s birth.
This is the fruit of the intersection of personal dreams and national dreams. When Beijing won the bid for the Winter Olympics in the summer of 2015, Xiaoming, who was only 11 years old, set his own goal — — After six and a half years of hard training, I stood on the stage of the Winter Olympics on behalf of China. He clearly knows that this is the best time for him, and it may be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to represent the country at home to win the highest honor.

This is a valuable youth ambition and courage — — Give up acting career, but also face the risk and pain of challenging the limit. When the national cross-border cross-country training team called, he joined without hesitation. The team also gave the boy a relaxed environment and strong guarantee after fully understanding him, which opened up a training mode different from the traditional training system for him. This allows him to devote himself to the preparations and the points competition of the Winter Olympics according to his own rhythm and ideas.
This way is also more conducive to him to maintain his unique sports style and temperament, a kind of freedom and freedom as the "soul" of veneer. This also makes it easier for him to be accepted and recognized by the international veneer circle. In fact, after years of training abroad, the growth track similar to that of international players and fluent English, Su Yiming can be well integrated into the international circle.
This will be the beginning of a new era of snowboarding in China. In recent years, snowboarding has been "blowout" among the people, and the proportion of snowboarders in major ski resorts has soared. Among the emerging skiers in the south, snowboarding accounts for an overwhelming proportion. Especially among children, veneer is because of one word — — "Cool" is popular. I believe among these children, there will be future champions.
Su Yiming’s blockbuster today is an exclamation point and a comma. His soaring will plant dreams and ignite hope in the hearts of more single-board "dolls" and teenagers.
