According to a Modern Evening Times report, Chinese short track speed skater Wang Meng has set up a sports culture company in her hometown Qitaihe, in northeast China's Heilongjiang Province, promising to give preferential recruitment to women and the disabled.
It is reported that Wang Meng's company was established with an investment of 80 million yuan (U.S. $12.9 million) on June 26. The company focuses on the sports culture industry.
Wang Meng insisted on establishing the company in Qitaihe, because that is her hometown, where she feels she belongs, and she also promised the local women's federation and disabled persons' federation that her company will afford preferential treatment in admitting local women and disabled workers.
Wang Meng, born in 1985, is a four-time Olympic Champion and 2008, 2009 World Champion in short track speed skating. She is the most decorated Chinese Winter Olympic athlete ever, with four Olympic gold medals, a silver and a bronze. Because of a serious ankle injury, Wang Meng missed the 2014 Sochi Winter Games in Russia.
