At only 16, Sheng Lihao has shown his talent as an up-and-coming shooter. On March 23, he secured himself a seat for the 2021 Tokyo Olympic Games in the last national men’s 10m air rifle (气步枪) trial. Despite ranking fifth, he is eligible (符合条件的) to qualify with a total of 182 points for the four trials. Previously, Sheng won gold medals in many competitions. At 13, Sheng was selected into a sports school where he weighed only 40 kilograms but had to carry an air rifle weighing 4 kilograms. After a series of training, including sit-ups, push-ups and planks (平板支撑), he now has a strong physique (体格). “During the training, Sheng shows remarkable concentration compared to his peers,” his first coach, Shen Chao, told The Paper.
