Exhibition at the Capital Museum recalls highlights of the glorious past and golden moments of Chinese sports.

The Summer Olympics were held in Beijing 14 years ago, now the city is ready for the Winter Games. With only a few weeks to go before the opening, a new exhibition at the Capital Museum is recalling highlights in Chinese sports.

At Inheritance and Surpassing: Exhibition of Chinese Sports Culture and the Dual Olympics, which opened on Dec 31, some 200 exhibits are telling the rich stories of sport in China. The exhibition, jointly organized by China Sports Museum and the Capital Museum, covers a wide spectrum ranging from various types of cultural relics in ancient sports-dating back centuries or even 2,000 years-to Olympic torches, medals and noted Chinese athletes’ personal belongings.

“Sports culture is deeply rooted in the soil of ancient Chinese civilization,” says Huang Jin, deputy director of China Sports Museum and curator of the ongoing exhibition. “Everlasting inheritance of such sports reflect Chinese people’s collective ethos and pursuit of etiquette and inclusiveness. They also demonstrate how Chinese people respect nature while emphasizing humanity.”

According to him, cultural relics can “talk” and visitors can get inspired by walking around the gallery.
