Does SPORTSMANSHIP Exist in Chinese Culture?
Sep 09, 2019 Season 2 Episode 5
Gene Hsu
Hey Little Buddy, this is cultural significance of sports...

Sportsmanship means it doesn't matter if you win or lose!

Sports transcends cultures, but sportsmanship isn't something that is taught in China. Fast forward to modern China, and the concept of TEAMWORK means something different than it means in the US.

When a Chinese swimmer is caught using performance enhancing drugs, to call him a cheater is to disrespect all 1.4 billion Chinese people.

When American professional athletes are caught in the US, the media calls out the cheater without any reference to the athletes nationality.
