Abstract:It is a good opportunity to push the Chinese traditional sports events to the world when Beijing hosts the Olympic Games in 2008. Among the possible selections of the sports events into the Olympics, the author thinks that the traditional Chinese martial arts has lost its significance. Instead, the author believes that the Chinese style wrestling and dragon-boat race should enjoy the priority.
