The Li Yan Story

Chinese Church Voices is a weekly column of the ChinaSource Blog providing translations of original writing by Christians in China. The views represented are entirely those of the original author; inclusion in Chinese Church Voices does not imply or equal an endorsement by ChinaSource.


In February of 2014, we posted a translated article from Christian Times about Li Yan, the most successful short-track speed-skating coach in the world. In that article, Li Yan shared about the importance of the Bible in her life and work.

Earlier this summer, the good folks at Athletes in Action posted a video interview of Li Yan, in which she shares her story of struggle and triumph.

Pray that Li Yan will continue to be salt and light in the Chinese Olympic community.
