2018 saw some breakthroughs within the sports system. Jiangsu became a pilot province for national football reform. We renovated the model of team establishment for winter sports, co-establishing four national training team for ice and snow sports with departments of the State Sports General Administration, municipalities, and enterprises, promoted the decoupling of associations and the institutional transformation of Wutaishan Sports Center, and hosted important events such as the 19th Jiangsu Provincial Games. Facilities were improved to better serve the public. 500 km of fitness trails and 700 sports parks were built. Jiangsu remained strong in competitive sports. Our athletes won 38 gold medals, ranking the national third.  Teenagers were active in sports. Jiangsu is now home to 13 pilot counties (cities, districts) for campus football development, 12 schools as football player reserve, and 18 provincial youth Olympic sports clubs. Sports industry continued to develop. The Three-Year Plan for Jiangsu’s Tourism and Sports Development and plans for outdoor, aero, water, ice, and snow sports industry were introduced.

Last December, the provincial government and the General Administration of Sports signed agreement on strengthening sporting power, marking the beginning of Jiangsu’s new journey of sports development. According to Chen Gang, head of Jiangsu Provincial Sports Administration, this year, Jiangsu will continue to work on difficult issues in sports development, promote the reform of sports community and Jiangsu football, and push forward the integration of physical exercise and physician treatment. We will provide better service to the public by improving facilities and organizing popular sporting events.
