Comments from the 95th torchbearer YANG Xiaoling (CHN) at the last station of the 7th CISM Military World Games torch relay on October 16.
YANG Xiaoling said: 

On carrying the torch:
“I have been very excited since this morning. When the torch was about to pass to me, I was a little nervous. However, I was confident because I had practised it so many times.
“My students also made me excited. They and some of the teachers performed the sign language dancing at last. Although they have hearing problems, they are able to use body language to show their pride as Wuhan people, and best wishes for the Games.”
On her preparations:
“I started exercising two or three months ago and I ran every day. Last week, I knew I was going to be torchbearer, so I began to do some psychological preparations and increase my knowledge of the Games so that I know what I shall do as a volunteer and what I shall convey to my students.
“When I got this news in school a few days ago, I encouraged the children and myself to cheer up so that we can pass the torch with best conditions."
On expectations for the Games:
“I expect this one to be the most successful one. I hope that all athletes can have good performances, showing the spirit of Wuhan and China.”
