Many ice hockey fans including a group of Chinese veteran amateur players are sceptical about China’s chances in the sport at the Beijing Winter Olympics in February 2022. The host nation was granted an automatic entry for its ice hockey without having to prove its performance in events leading up to the Games. But former player Yu Xin said it would be an honour for China’s team to “just score one goal” against a strong team from overseas.
