Some Chinese coaches are offering their expert guidance to teams from other Asian countries. It is a unique arrangement that promises to lift the level of competition throughout the region at the 16th Asian Games.

The girl with the big eyes is a gymnast from Vietnam. But you may think she is Chinese just from her appearance. Vietnam brought three girls to take part in the gymnastics competition, and their performances surprised even the Chinese team. Chinese Zhao Gu happens to be their coach.

Zhao Gu, Coach of Vietnam Women's Gymnastic Team, said, "These girls all fight very hard, and with their serious attitude, they are very clever. I am really proud of them."

China is always regarded as a favorite in the Wushu discipline of Sanshou. But in the women's event, many skilled athletes from other Asian countries easily drew a lot of attention. This Iranian athlete says she just wanted to compete against the Chinese, win or lose.

Mansoryansamiroumi Elaheh, Iran Women's Sanshou 52kg, said, "I did not mean to claim the gold in the match. I just wanted to match up with the Chinese players. I feel really glad that I could compete with them."

The Chinese coach who is guiding two Iranian athletes says she can easily communicate with her apprentices.

Pang Yan, Coach of Iran Women's Wushu Team, said, "I need to teach them and help them gain good results. I wanted them to know me well. And that's why I needed to learn their language."

Apart from learning Farsi, the coach also brought Chinese culture to the west Asian players.
