What province do China’s best athletes come from?

In China, almost every province has its own top sports. For example, there are many first-class badminton players in Hunan Province, and Hebei Province is famous for shooting. However, among all the provinces Liaoning Province has contributed most to the miraculous performance of Chinese elite athletes in the Olympic arena. Among the Olympic champions hailing from Liaoning are Yuan Hua (women’s judo, Sydney), Wang Junxia (women’s 10,000 meter, Atlanta), Wang Yifu (men’s shooting, Athens), Wang Nan (women’s table tennis, Sydney and Athens) and Zhang Ning (women’s badminton, Athens).
