I have yet to see this show on CCTV2.


It is supposedly to be a series featuring the Chinese Olympians with various groups of surviving children from the Sichuan earthquake.

The theme is to teach them some important ingredients in life: Teamwork, Persistence, Potential and Life........

And Yao Ming and the Chinese men basketball national team were invited as honorable guests to tape the first episode on Teamwork this afternoon (August 26) in Beijing.

So Yao Ming and Yi Jianlian were asked to have a tug of war with the kids.

First 4 kids came on stage.......and Yao Ming & Yi Jianlian easily won.

Then 8 kids came on stage......and Yao Ming and Yi Jianlian still had no problem and won out the contest.

Then 14 kids came on stage and this time, Yao Ming and Yi Jianlian lost.

And the captain for the Sichuan earthquake survivors is no one but that 9-year-old kid, Lin Hao, who showed up walking beside Yao Ming in the Olympic opening ceremony.......

More like Yao won, Yi doens't appear to be trying a whole lot.
