It's one of many pictures captured in sporting schools across China of young children being put through gruelling training routines at ages as young as six. However, things are changing in the country as demographics shift as the country grows more prosperous and a larger focus is placed on different forms of education. China's sports system has been enormously successful since the country returned to the Olympic fold in 1980, culminating with the host nation topping the medals' table at the 2008 Beijing Olympics with only a sl...

The Beijing Olympics brought concerns from many groups that China's poor human rights record was being overlooked. However, they have also brought into China's state-run sporting system, and the often-disturbing lifestyles it imposes on its athletes. Here's more. STORY: Chinese Olympic diver Guo Jingjing won two gold medals at the Bejing Olympics, added to previous wins in Athens. But she suffers from a number of health issues, including eyesight problems rumored to be so severe that she can hardly see the diving board as she competes. She had announced plans to retire after this year's Games, but it's not clear whether she will ever recover her vision. The damage is said to be caused by her intense training. She began diving competitively at age six, before her retina were fully developed. Guo's fellow Olympic diver Chen Ruolin is 15 years old and weighs a just 66 pounds. Her state-appointed coach ordered her to skip dinner for one year leading up to the Games so she could stay thin and make a smaller splash when she hit the water. Such stories abound in a country where top-level athletes are usually chosen at extremely young ages, based on body type, and placed in intensive, state-run training programs to prepare them for eventual Olympic competition. They train all day, everyday in an environment many athletes in the West might consider harsh—or even abusive. But for those in China's athletic system, which is inspired by the Soviet Union, it's just the way of life demanded by the Communist Party. But not all of the athletes' suffering is physical. Gold-medal weightlifter Cao Lei was so cut-off from the outside world that no one told her that her mother was dying. She only found out two months after the funeral, and never had a chance to say goodbye. Gold-winner in judo Xian Dongmei said she had not been able to see her own 18-month-old daughter for over a year. While Olympians from other countries might speak of getting back to their normal lives after the Games, many Chinese athletes will be returning to the camps that have housed them since they were children, away from family and friends, and without the chance to develop any hobbies or outside interests. It is the price they pay in order to realize the Chinese Communist Party calls the "patriotic duty" of getting more gold medals than the United States.

China's Race for Gold China is home to some of the world's best athletes. At the Beijing Olympics, the country topped the medals table, winning 100 medals in 25 sports, including 51 golds. And they are widely expected to do well at the 2012 London Games. Each year, young talent - some just five years old - are singled out by scouts and placed in special state-run academies where they are groomed to become future champions. Some, like basketball star Yao Ming, eventually achieve success. Others are not so fortunate. Zhang Shangwu, a former gold medalist at the World University Games survives by begging on the streets of Beijing. Zhang once had a promising career as a gymnast but was forced to retire a decade ago because of an injury to his achilles tendon. With his Olympic dreams dashed, Zhang attempted to study and find alternative employment, only to be rebuffed time and again because of his lack of paper qualifications. The young man turned to petty theft, spent time in prison, and is today homeless and penniless. Zhang is not alone. Retired Chinese athletes regularly complain that they suffer from injuries and unemployment, as the government frequently neglects their scholastic education and ignores their injuries while taking a sizable cut of their earnings in the name of national pride. Some athletes also say they faced abuse, exploitation and official interference during the course of their careers. But now, there are calls for change. Yao Ming himself is trying to reshape basketball in his country. In 2009, he bought his old team, the Shanghai Sharks, and hired coaches from the NBA to help revamp its training programme. Sang Lan, a former gymnast, is also a vocal advocate for change. Paralysed from the chest down following a tragic accident just before the 1998 Goodwill Games, Sang has been calling for better insurance coverage for Chinese athletes. In 2009, she wrote an open letter to Premier Wen Jiabao, urging him to look into the matter. Shen Jian, one of the country's leading BMX riders, recently refused to wear government-endorsed brands at the X Games Asia in Shanghai. Doing so, would have ended Shen's exclusive endorsement deal with his own sponsor. Shen was subsequently banned from competition. But he refused to back down and even formed his own company, which now oversees his career, and the careers of a small group of BMX riders. As the London 2012 Olympics unfold, it is clear that China's state-backed sports system is slowly being overhauled. But change might come too late for some athletes. What does China sacrifice in its relentless pursuit of gold?

Inside China's sports schools in search for next Olympic star Heartbreaking images of a child crying have emerged from a children's school in China, a country where in the past, young children have been placed in schools designed to train future Olympic champions. It's one of many pictures captured in sporting schools across China of young children being put through gruelling training routines at ages as young as six. However, things are changing in the country as demographics shift as the country grows more prosperous and a larger focus is placed on different forms of education. China's sports system has been enormously successful since the country returned to the Olympic fold in 1980, culminating with the host nation topping the medals' table at the 2008 Beijing Olympics with only a slight dip into second place behind the United States in London four years later. Fewer parents are willing to let their children endure gruelling training routines, leading to a fall in student numbers. Some schools have closed and others are adjusting the way they work. The number of sport schools is down from 3,687 in 1990, government numbers show. At Shanghai's No.1 Children's Sports School Pudong New Area where the change is unfolding, the school's party committee secretary, Huang Qin, said: 'In the 1980s and 1990s, schools like ours were extremely attractive'. '(But) parents are less willing now to send their child to sports schools The school's alumni include former Olympians such as hurdler Chen Yanhao and female footballer Xie Huilin.if they perform fairly well in exams...The source of students for sports schools has shrunk as society placed more importance on cultural education.' Debates about the continued relevance of the sports school system began to emerge around the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Huang and other schools said, as emerging tales of difficulties facing retired athletes jarred against rising expectations of education standards among China's booming middle-class. The country's declining birth rate as a result of China's one-child policy has not helped either, along with its cut-throat education system, which sees Chinese students spend twice as much time on homework a day compared to the global average. Beijing responded to these concerns in 2010 by issuing a new policy, known as document 23, ordering sport schools to improve teaching standards and to give more support to retired athletes. At the No.1 Children's Sports School Pudong New Area, Huang said it had improved its teacher training. Three years ago, it also relaxed a 40-year tradition of requiring its entire student cohort to study, train and live full-time on campus. Now, more than half of the school's 700 athletes study at other schools. Of its remaining 300 or so full-time students, about 10 percent live off-campus. Other schools like the Shanghai Yangpu Youth Amateur Athletic School, are going into kindergartens to advertise gymnastics as an after-school play time activity to parents. 'We call it happy gymnastics,' said principal Zhu Zengxiang. At Beijing's Shichahai, adorned with posters extolling the feats of ex-students turned Olympic champions, vice-head Zhang Jing said the school offered 'comprehensive development' and equipped athletes with the skills needed for life after sport. The Shanghai Sports School, whose alumni include former Olympic swimming champion Liu Zige, began in 2012 to reject athletes that did not pass its academic entrance exams, and tells parents it wants to use sports training to educate rather than as an end-goal, according to principal Sheng Maowu. 'A lot of sport schools are moving in this direction...but this is a painful process,' he said. 'At present the existing thought is that education and training are two different routes -- if you want to be a world champion you cannot study. This belief is wrong...and at the end of the day very few become champions.' The government does not publish student enrolment at its sports schools, but there are signs that the changing landscape has already begun to impact China's pool of sporting talent. In April, the China Sports Daily reported that the number of Chinese athletes training to be table tennis players had fallen by almost a quarter since 1987 to 23,266. 'In this changing situation, we must re-examine the traditional training system and model for competitive sports,' Liu Shaonong, head of the table tennis and badminton centre of China's General Administration of Sport, was quoted as saying. Reform, however, is proving slow to take root. In March, a government survey found that some schools inspected across nine cities and provinces did not spend enough money on education, and some local education departments paid little attention to making improvements in line with document 23, according to state media.

It's not like if I'm not playing (professionally) I'm nothing. I think I have a lot of choices. But most importantly I need to learn to play well." (Reporter: Or become a coach?) " Yeah, that's an option." 7. Wide of gymnasium 8. Various of young male gymnasts practicing STORYLINE China is hoping to cement its position at the top of the Olympic medal table with a new crop of young athletes practicing hard to bring home gold at future Games. More than 300 young athletes are in training at Beijing's Xiannongtan Sports School - among them controversial young gymnast He Kexin. Her two gold medals prompted claims she was too young to be eligible for the Olympics, but Chinese officials insist her passport proves otherwise. At the school itself, students start as young as 12, ranging in age up to their twenties or thirties. They mostly come from Beijing, but still live at the school so that they can devote more time to practice. The training regime can be tough and painful, but all of the students hope it will pay off with Olympic gold. They don't have to look very far for inspiration, role models and heroes - some of the best athletes in the world are classmates or friends. "Cheng Fei is the person I most think about as a role model," said 14 year old aspiring gymnast, Zhang Jing, referring to the Chinese gymnast who won the bronze medal on the balance beam on Tuesday. China has faced criticism for "tracking" youngsters too early into a specialised sports education, focusing all their effort on one specific sport. Critics claim this is effectively mass producing athletes. But the school says students who don't make it onto the international stage will get a pension regardless. The athletes themselves do not seem too worried. Table tennis player Fang Li says at age 20, he will probably never make it to the top level of his sport, but could become a coach or physical education teacher instead. He is also considering college studies. "There are many options - for example, I could continue with training or go abroad and study - I could study and still play ball, there are a lot of choices. It's not like if I'm not playing (professionally) I'm nothing. I think I have a lot of choices. But most importantly I need to learn to play well," said Fang. Most students devote at least four hours a day to their sport, but they also undertake academic studies at the school. Education fees are paid by their families, while sporting fees are covered by China's government. Xiannongtan, first established in the late 1950's, specialises in six sports; gymnastics, track and field, table tennis, tennis, women's football and men's weightlifting. Students say the Beijing Olympics has provided a big boost for their sports - and many are now looking forward to London 2012.
