Shanghai, June 9 (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 9th Jun, 2021 ) :Legendary Chinese trampolinist Dong Dong will compete at the Tokyo Olympics, state media said on Wednesday, making a record fourth appearance at the Games.
Dong hopes that his age can be an advantage.
"My mentality is my advantage over younger trampolinists. I know better how to take advantage of the nervousness. I make fewer mistakes," he said in 2018.
Dong was the oldest competitor in the men's individual final at Rio, where he missed out on becoming the first back-to-back winner as Uladzislau Hancharou of Belarus beat him to the title.
Like many Chinese gymnasts, Dong has been training since childhood, joining a gymnastics team at the age of five.
