The first day premiere of "Winning the Championship" (formerly known as "Chinese Women's Volleyball") movie at box office, the spirit of women's volleyball moved the fans. The film is based on the China women's national volleyball team's stories spread over more than 40 years.
As a sports-themed film, "Winning the Championship" of course, there is no lack of intense and intense competition scenes. The film focuses on three wonderful volleyball matches, namely, the match between China and Japan in the third Women's Volleyball World Cup in 1981, the China vs. USA match in Beijing Olympic Games in 2008, and China vs. Brazil match in Rio Olympics in 2016, which also connected the development process of Chinese women's volleyball team in nearly 40 years. At the same time, there are many literary plays in the film, which depict the mental process of Lang Ping and other folks and the intergenerational inheritance of Chinese women's volleyball team, and there is no lack of contemporary thinking on "Women's Volleyball Spirit".
And an MV to serve as the movie's promotional video performed by a young Chinese singer and actor, Peng Yuchang 彭昱畅 who also plays in the film -- the song title is “A Hero Never Dies” 《真心英雄》
