Zhang Juanjuan, Olympics archery gold medalist and delegate from the Shandong Women's Delegation to the 11th National Women's Congress of China, says that she is honored to represent Chinese women athletes at the congress.

Zhang is the leader of China’s women’s archery team and began training at the age of 14 in the 1990s when women's participation in sports was not widely accepted in China. She has said that women's involvement in sports in China has improved and the sports environment is now more gender equal.

When it comes to her goals, Zhang says that she hopes to have more time to learn more and improve herself.
