As the Hangzhou Asian Games approaches, the newly-opened Hangzhou Asian Games Museum has become a popular attraction, giving visitors the chance to learn about the history of past Asian Games and admire gifts from various participating countries.

Chou T'ingying, a young person from Taiwan who works as the exhibit manager at the museum, was impressed by a canoe donated by the Chinese Taipei Olympic Committee.

Chou expressed her gratitude for the support and interaction between both sides of the Taiwan Strait, emphasizing the role that sports can play in fostering communication. She said that sports can act as a bridge for cross-Strait exchanges, especially during preparations for the Hangzhou Asian Games.

During her time working in Hangzhou, Chou has met many young people from Taiwan who are equally enthusiastic about the games, bringing both sides closer together.

In addition to competitions, Chou sees sports as a great way to promote people-to-people exchange. She said that the Hangzhou Asian Games can provide an opportunity for young people on both sides of the Taiwan Strait to engage in various sports activities.

While dedicated to her work preparing for the Games, Chou also expressed her longing for her hometown. She is excited to witness the performances of athletes from both the mainland and Chinese Taipei at the games. During her recent visit to Taipei, she was impressed by the atmosphere and enthusiasm surrounding the Asian Games, indicating the significance of the Games for both sides of the Strait.

As the only young person from Taiwan working in the Hangzhou Asian Games Organizing Committee, Chou hopes that young people across the Taiwan Strait can build closer ties, understand each other better, and appreciate the development and changes that have taken place on the mainland in recent years.
