China's Olympic boxing were training in Bradford on Tuesday (July 24th) ahead of the London Games.
China's Olympic boxing team checked into their Bradford training camp on July 18th, hoping to focus on preparations for the London Games and adapt to the environment and culture of Great Britain.
A college boxing training centre in Bradford is being used by the Chinese boxers for their final preparation.
Nine athletes will represent China in the Olympics, competing at the Excel Arena from July 28th to Aug 12th, including Beijing Olympic champion Zou Shiming, silver medallist Zhang Zhilei and Ren Cancan - women's world champion in the 48 kilogram class.
London is the third Olympics for 31-year-old Zou Shiming, who won a bronze medal eight years ago in Athens before clinching the gold in Beijing in 2008.
Zou hopes he can defend his Olympic title in London, but acknowledged the tough challenges he will face from top boxers from other countries, who all see him as a target.
A former martial arts athlete in Guizhou in Southwest China, Zou started to shine in the boxing arena in 2003 when he made a breakthrough for Chinese boxing by winning a silver medal in the Bangkok World Championships.
He has continued his momentum in the following years, winning a bronze medal in Athens Olympics in 2004 and the world champion title in Mianyang in 2005.
The gold medal he won in Beijing Games made him a national hero in China, even though it is not a popular sport in the country.
Zou said he proved his ability four years ago in Beijing, so he comes to London at a relaxed mentality, hoping to enjoy the Olympic atmosphere in London.
AIBA, the world amateur boxing authority, has introduced some new rules for the competition, aiming to make the sport more exciting and fun to watch for the viewers.
In short, a defensive approach in the competition is not encouraged.
Nicknamed as a "boxing pirate" by his competitors, Zou has adjusted his style according to the new rules.
Zhang Chuanliang, head coach of the Chinese team, has been coaching Zou for a decade.
He said Zou has been focusing on the training of his offensive style and it has been tested successfully.
Zou got married after the Beijing Games and became a father of a son last year.
Since he decided to participate in a third Olympic Games, Zou has to go to a training camp back in his hometown Guizhou, with rare chances to see his wife and his son at home.
However, Zou said this sacrifice is worthwhile and he hopes to be a role model for the young generation, including his son.
Zou has announced that London will be his last Olympics - he hopes to have a long vacation after the Games and spend more time with the family.
It will be a big loss for the Chinese boxing if Zou retires, said Chang Jianping, head of Chinese Boxing Association, who has overseen the development of Chinese boxing in the past decade.
Chinese boxers achieved their best record in their history at the Beijing Olympics by winning two gold medals, one silver and a bronze.
Zou will start his gold medal journey in London from August 4th, but he knows the road will not be smooth and easy.
