"I have not been this tired in a long time!" Feixiang Lin said while staring at the ceiling. He sounded rather weak.
"Let me massage your legs," Dai Li said as walked over to him. His massage was the best way to relieve the muscle fatigue of an athlete.
"Thanks!" Feixiang Lin was just lying there. He did not move at all.
"What do you think? How much have you recovered?" Dai Li asked.
"Around eighty percent!" Feixiang Lin said.
"His professional capacity is 765, if this is only eighty percent of his professional capacity, that means he would reach over 950 when he has fully recovered!" Dai Li calculated and asked surprisingly, "You are already this good when your professional capacity is 765 at 80%?"
"My professional capacity? Already so good? What do you mean?" Feixiang Lin said. He had no idea what Dai Li was talking about.
Dai Li realized he had had a slip of tongue, so he immediately changed the topic. "I read some of the news put out by the paparazzi that you had an affair with Sister Feng Feng, an online celebrity. Is that true?"
"Of course not! She is not beautiful at all. One day I met her by accident, and she leaned on me on purpose. I could not even stop her!" Feixiang Lin said.
"How about the famous female star Li Mimi? People on the internet are saying that you two are in a relationship," Dai Li said.
"Bullshxt, that is impossible. We happened to be in the same restaurant. It is only because of the drama show she plays a leading role in is on air that they put that story out. They want to attract more viewers!" Feixiang Lin said without any hesitation.
"What about your son? There are photos of him on the internet!" Dai Li laughed.
"He is my cousin's son. Whenever I would take part in a competition in Dong Gang, my nephew would come to see me live and cheer for me. Besides, think sensibly: the kid in that photo is almost ten-years-old, and my nephew is already twelve years old. I was still very young twelve years ago. How could I have had a son of that age at that time?" Feixiang Lin said.
They began to talk about everything, even some deeper topics. Because there were only young athletes in the training hall, all the top players had gone to join the field trip on the plateau. The atmosphere here was much more relaxed.
"If Coach Ding and others were here, we could never talk like this. But anyway, it is really good that I can take part in a competition soon!" Feixiang Lin had a long sigh.
"What's wrong? Are you feeling nostalgic?" Dai Li asked.
"Yes, I have not been on the field in two years," Feixiang Lin said, suddenly standing up.
"Am I pressing too hard?" Dai Li asked.
"No, I just remembered that the Qatar Money Grabbing game is going to be held next month. This time I have to be there!" Feixiang Lin said earnestly.
Dai Li suddenly stopped speaking, looking at Feixiang Lin in a daze.
"I'm talking about the IAAF Diamond League in Doha. You know Doha, right? The capital of Qatar, a country full of millionaires. The host of the competition in Doha has always been very generous. I have been to Doha two times, and every time I went we lived in a five-star hotel. The reward is always a bit more generous, also."
Feixiang Lin thought a few seconds, then said, "For example, the winner of the IAAF Diamond League in Doha will not only receive the reward, but also the extra bonus given by the host, which is more than what is given by the IAAF Diamond League. The host will also give an appearance fee to famous athletes. That is why the IAAF Diamond League is jokingly called the 'money grabbing game.'"
"Are you going to join that competition? Can you really do that in your condition?" Dai Li asked.
"I still have a month! I still have time to improve myself. The key is getting the National Team to allow me to take part in the competition," Feixiang Lin said.
"Well, we have to wait until Coach Ding and the others come back before they can make the decision, right?" Dai Li asked.
Feixiang Lin contemplated this, then said, "I am going to fill out a competition application form. I have not seen one for almost two years. I have almost forgotten what it looks like."
In the conference room of the North Pass Training Center, people were deciding who should attend the IAAF Diamond League.
The host of the conference was Zhao Shuren, the head coach of the National Track and Field Team. He was holding a manuscript and said, "The bonus for the money grabbing game in Qatar is quite a lot. We all know that the athletes in our country cannot take part in a competition like the IAAF Diamond League. But this time it is being held in Asia, and I have a few ideas about who should attend. In today's conference, I intend to talk about who should be sent to the competition. As usual, let's start with the 100m dash. I have a suggestion for this..."
Soon, they began to whittle down who should be sent for the 110m hurdles.
"Next, let's decide who should be the one to take part in the 110m hurdles. I only have one opening for this slot," the host of the conference said.
A coach said immediately, "We should definitely choose Dong Teng. He is the most suitable person for the 110m hurdles. Besides, he has made great progress in the last two years. At the beginning of this year, he won the bronze medal in the 60m hurdles competition. Judging from his ability and status, he is the perfect one for this competition."
Zhao Shuren, the head coach, looked at Ding Jihai and said, "Coach Ding, you are the head coach of the hurdles team. Who do you think should be sent to Qatar?"
Ding Jihai sat up straight and said, "Currently, Dong Teng is the strongest in the 110m hurdles in all of Asia, and he can probably work himself into being one of the best in the world. But because the bonus of the IAAF Diamond League is so much, and famous athletes can receive an extra appearance fee, there will be a lot of world-class athletes taking part in this competition. Compared with them, Dong Teng's advantages may not matter. I think it is impossible for him to win a medal with his current performance."
"So you think Dong Teng is the most suitable person, right?" Zhao Shuren asked.
Ding Jihai nodded. "In fact, I hope there can be more outstanding young people joining our team soon. We want to see some new faces." He then turned around and asked Director Zhang, "Director Zhang, apart from Dong Teng, is there anyone else who has handed in their application form for the IAAF Diamond League?"
The Director hesitated for two seconds, then said, "Yes, there is, but..."
"Tell us, who this inspirational young man is?" someone immediately asked.
"It's Feixiang Lin!" Director Zhang said. "It is Feixiang Lin who handed in his application form!"
Ding Jihai's eyes were shining. The conference room was silent.
