On the high speed rail back to Qingcheng City, Dai Li looked out the window, his soul in Qatar.
Two days ago, coach Ding had flown Feixiang Lin to Qatar. The whole flight would take about nine hours. Because of jetlag, when they arrived in Qatar it was still early in the morning. Only a limited number of people were allowed to visit Qatar, therefore Dai Li, as a staff member on loan, didn’t get the chance to go. Moreover, the extra month he had agreed to stay for was about to end. It was time for him to return to Qingcheng City.
The game hasn’t started yet. It starts this afternoon, and there is a five hour time difference. I can watch it once I arrive, Li thought. He checked the training list in the system.
As I predicted, Feixiang Lin is still on the list. I don’t know when he will be deleted from the list, but as for right now he can keep using the explosive force halo. Even though men’s 110m hurdles doesn’t require much explosive force, it is influential when competing with the world’s best hurdlers. Lin may have a better performance with the explosive force halo. I really hope he can win gold so that I can be rewarded.
Li remembered that before Lin went to Qatar, he had detected Lin’s ability. Lin had reached exactly 900 points, which was good enough for him to be a world champion.
Lin was worth respecting. A month ago, when Lin was competing with Teng Dong, his ability was less than 800 points, but in just one month Lin had improved himself to 900 through long-term high-intensity training.
As Li had witnessed, Lin had been living in "hell" for a month. Li had even thought that there was no one in this world could bear such frightening training except for Lin. No pain, no gain, as the saying went. As a result, Lin had improved himself rapidly in a short period of time, and was close to his top level.
After a seven hour trip, Li finally arrived in Qingcheng City. It was dusk. Li bought several steamed buns, then headed to his dorm in the Provincial Sport Team Training Center.
Lin’s game is about to start. Li booted up his laptop, but found that there was no internet.
"Where is the internet?" Li roared angrily.
"Network maintenance. They said that our network needs to be updated. They are changing optical fibers," said Li’s roommate.
"What? At this time?" Li wanted to find an internet bar outside, but it was too late. He would have to pay for staying over.
My phone is running out of data. I don’t have enough for video. I can only read online novels. Perhaps I should buy a data package? Right, that’s a good idea!
A lot of apps offered an online service that added data packages, but Li preferred to visit the mobile company’s official website. The website offered a provincial data package with a lower price than the national data package. It was more economical to buy a provincial data package.
50MB of data is definitely not enough for watching video. To watch a live telecast, it would require at least 200MB, maybe even 300MB. Wait, I can only choose 500MB... If I buy 1G, it will be more economical than 500MB. Oh, but 2G is better! But it’s the end of month, 2G is a waste of data.
Li was making a common mistake that many people made, which was that when they saw an economical product, they were in a dilemma: on the one hand, he wanted to enjoy more benefits; on the other hand, he was worrying about wasting money.
Alright then, I’d better buy a 1G data package. I wonder when network maintenance will finish. If it only lasts for two or three days, I can make full use of this 1G. Li finally made a decision.
After he bought the data package, Li opened up the live telecast app. But all he saw was a female pole-vaulter.
"Hasn’t the game started yet? Or has it already finished?" As Li was pondering, a news story suddenly popped up. It read:
"12.86 seconds. Feixiang Lin has broken the world record again!"
Li was euphoric. Lin broke world record! He did it! I wished he could win, but I never thought it would come true! Although his current ability is 900 points. That plus the explosive force halo and being in good condition, he did have a high possibility of winning.
Li couldn’t wait to read the news. It didn’t give much information, only saying that Lin had won the championship in men’s 110m hurdle at the IAAF Diamond League in Qatar. He had broken the world record again with a 12.86 seconds performance.
Video, where is the playback? Li searched and searched, then finally found the playback.
In the heat, Lin was running side-by-side with David Bose until the last second. It showed that Lin reached the finishing line before Bose. When he received his official record, Lin howled in the air with pride. At last he got the chance to vent his depressions.
Awesome! A new world record! Lin proved himself! Poor Bose, he only kept his record for a month. Wait, Lin won first place. Will I receive extra reward? Thinking about this, Li immediately accessed into the system to check his status.
Name: Dai Li;
Coach Level: Junior Coach, advanced level (12,177/50,000);
Others: Explosive Force Halo.
Abilities: Slimming Exercise, Fat Losing Game, Massage and Muscle Relaxation, Rehabilitative Massage.
Training List: Feixiang Lin
I’m upgraded! I used to be at the junior coach medium level, but now I’m at advanced level. I have gained a ton of experience during Lin’s training. I remember that I had 12,177 points, and the requirement to upgrade was 30,000 points. Does that mean that I have gained 30,000 points? Wow, impressive!
Li was astonished. When Aiguo Jiang had won the championship, Li had only been rewarded 1,000 points. Later, when Feifei Yu won gold, Li was also rewarded 1,000 points. But this time, when Lin had won the world championship, Li got a 30,000 point reward. It was 30 times as high as his previous rewards. It was a big surprise.
Even though it requires 50,000 points to become a senior coach, seem like it will not be tough work, Li smiled.
"Hey, don’t be so pleased with yourself. Your 30,000 points experience is just an coincidence." The system always showed up at the wrong time.
The system explained, "First of all, during Lin’s training process, you were indeed very helpful. You helped him recover, you helped him lose weight, and the most important thing you did was help him find himself. Therefore, based on your effort, you deserve this big reward."
"Haha, I deserve this!" Li was proud of himself.
"It is also because Lin broke world record, which is rarely seen. You know how hard it is to break a world record in track events. If Lin won a world championship in the Diamond League, you may only have four or five thousand points instead. Your 30,000 points were largely decided by the world record," the system continued.
"Well, I’m really lucky. If Lin had won the game a few days from now, after he was automatically deleted from the list, I wouldn’t have received as many points. 30,000 points is a cool reward!" Li waved his fist with excitement, then said, "Now where is my gift pack?"
