A Read the article . A Different Kind of School China wants to be the world’s number 1 country at international sports competitions such as the Olympic Games , and it has a plan to make this happen . It’s training thousands of young people to “ bring home the gold” . In fact , China has 3 , 000 special schools to train young athletes . 5 The children often start their training at the age of nine . They come from all over the country so they live , study and train at the sports schools . They spend many hours of the day training , so they don’t have much time for ordinary school subjects or hobbies . Because the schools are often hundreds of kilometers away from the children’s homes , they only see their families once or twice a year . Life 10 isn’t easy for the young athletes , but they feel proud because they are doing something important for their country . Today , about 400 , 000 young Chinese are training and studying at sports schools , and every year new children join them . All of them hope to become champions , but only about one in 2 , 000 succeeds .
