Sporting philosophy / motto"The key of the sport is training. If you don't train enough, you won't know what to do. If you can't defend or make passes during training, you can't do it in competitions either." (The Paper, 18 Apr 2023)

Reason for choosing this sportThere was no school in the village he grew up in, so he was sent Jiamusi, People's Republic of China, where he stayed with a physical education teacher and attended school. The teacher would skate outdoors every winter and Zhong got involved in the sport too. "I was training in speed skating before, and didn't know about short track skating until I moved to Jiamusi and saw people skating in the venue. But the track was so little and the skaters touched ice every time they made a turn. I found this sport so cool and thought about committing to it."  
When and where did you begin this sport?He took up short track skating in Jiamusi, People's Republic of China.
