    最近,国际滑联以极其敏锐的洞察力和嗅觉在官网头版推出了标题为《短道速滑传奇王濛引领中国重回伟大》的人物特写,这篇文章属于致敬大师系列,现将国际滑联官网全文转译如下。
 

   今年五月,冬奥会四金得主王濛被赋予带领中国速度滑冰和短道速滑国家队在2022年冬奥会上夺冠的重任,这丝毫没有令人感到意外。

   对于中国年轻的短道速滑和速度滑冰选手来说,没有人比他们的新任教练组组长更令人敬佩了。王濛是中国体育真正的传奇。

   2006年都灵冬奥会,王濛获得一金一银一铜。四年后的温哥华冬奥会,她史无前例地获得了三枚短道速滑金牌。这些成就使她成为有史以来最受欢迎的中国冬奥会选手。

   她是一个非常全面的明星——她赢得过从500米到3000米接力每个项目的奥运会和世界比赛奖牌——2014年,当她退役的时候,共有18项世界锦标写下了她的名字。在索非亚举行的2019年国际滑冰联盟世界短道速滑锦标赛上,中国短道速滑选手出人意料地没有获得任何金牌。此时,只有一个人可以求助。

   “我的教练团队将不忘初心,牢记曾经的光荣与传统,并与各方通力合作,为短道速滑和速度滑冰在2022年北京冬奥会上取得好成绩找到最佳的方法。”王濛在成为短道速滑和速度滑冰国家队教练组组长后,告诉新华社记者。
   “这既是一种荣誉,也是压力。”她补充道。

   不过,王濛已经习惯了压力。1985年,王濛出生于中国黑龙江省。2001年,她获得了ISU世界青年短道速滑锦标赛全能亚军。一年之后,17岁的她获得了自己的第一枚ISU世界杯成年比赛奖牌。

   一旦开始,成功相随。2002-2003赛季,王濛和队友一起在女子3000米接力项目上获得了自己的第一枚ISU短道速滑世界杯奖牌。很快,收集500米金牌就成了她的“消遣”。
   2006年都灵冬奥会,王濛是女子500米金牌的最热门争夺者。短距离皇后没有令人失望。她将世界纪录保持者保加利亚人拉达诺娃甩在身后。
   作为篮球巨星迈克尔·乔丹的狂热粉丝,王濛表现出的对胜利的渴望和这个大个子一样。在2006年都灵冬奥会和2010年温哥华冬奥会之间,王濛不可思议地获得了8项ISU世界桂冠,其中包括两次全能冠军。

   这种状态给温哥华冬奥会带来了很大的期待和压力,但是王濛完全可以应付。
   短距离比赛为卫冕冠军提供了完美的舞台,她以0.659秒的优势击败了银牌得主、加拿大选手玛丽安·圣·吉莱,这是短距离比赛中是十分罕见的优势。随后,王濛战胜了美国选手霍普·凯瑟琳·雷特。在女子3000米接力赛中,王濛和队友张会、周洋、孙琳琳创造了新的世界纪录。加上周洋在女子1500米比赛中夺得冠军,那一年中国队横扫了女子短道赛场。

   为了让中国短道速滑重回巅峰,中国体育的管理部门找到了王濛。其时,35岁的王濛已经转战商业战场,在中国运营着体育服装相关的产业。
   首先,王濛召集了140名运动员进行了两个月的备战训练,为的是准备2019-2020赛季。然后她要确保这些运动员训练的正确性。

   7月,王濛任命金善台为中国短道速滑项目的外方主教练,后者在2018年平昌冬奥会上所带领的韩国队的表现给人留下了深刻的印象。与金善台一起进入国家队的还有一些其他外教,其中包括1998年长野冬奥会金牌得主,加拿大人坎贝尔。

   “王指导和我是很好的朋友,所以我很高兴能来到这里帮助中国滑冰取得更好的成绩。”在获得任命后,金善台告诉新华社记者。
   在历届冬奥会上,中国代表团共获得了62枚奖牌,其中33枚奖牌来自于短道速滑项目。对于王濛和金善台来说,压力是显而易见的。但是王濛的职业生涯昭示着,她擅长在重压之下成就卓越。


   附官网原文
   It was no surprise when, in May of this year, China’s four-time Olympic champion Wang Meng was given the responsibility of leading her country’s national Speed Skating squads to glory in the Beijing 2022 Games.
   For China’s young Short Track and Speed Skaters, there is nobody more revered than the team’s new head coach. Wang is a true legend of Chinese sport.
   She won an unprecedented three Short Track gold medals at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games, with further gold, silver and bronze medals at the Torino 2006 Games making her the most decorated Chinese winter Olympian of all time.
   The versatile star – she won Olympic and world medals in every distance from 500m to the 3000m relay – retired in 2014 with an extraordinary 18 world titles to her name. After China’s Short Track Speed Skaters surprisingly failed to win any gold medals at the 2019 ISU World Short Track Speed Skating Championships in Sofia, there was only one person to turn to.
   "My coaching staff and I will keep past glories and traditions in mind, and together with all relevant parties, we will work out the best method of preparation for both squads ahead of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics on home ice," Wang told China’s national news agency Xinhua after taking overall charge of both the Speed Skating and Short Track Speed Skating men’s and ladies’ squads.
   “This is both an honor and a source of pressure,” she added.
   But Wang is used to pressure. Born in China’s Heilongjiang province in 1985, she was the overall ISU World Junior Short Track Speed Skating Championship silver medalist in 2001. A year later, aged 17, she claimed her first senior ISU World Cup Short Track Speed Skating medal.
   Once it started, success flowed. Wang’s first ISU World Cup Short Track Speed Skating medals arrived in the 3000m ladies relay during the early part of the 2002/03 season, but she soon started collecting 500m titles for fun.
   At Torino 2006, Wang was a clear favourite for the 500m gold. The sprint queen did not disappoint, proving far too strong for Bulgaria’s one-time world record holder Evgenia Radanova.
   An avid fan of basketball superstar Michael Jordan, Wang showed a similar appetite for winning as the big man himself. Between the Torino 2006 and Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games, Wang won a remarkable eight ISU World titles, including two overall crowns.
   Such form brought considerable expectation and pressure ahead of the Vancouver Games, but Wang was more than equal to it.
   The sprint provided the perfect stage for the defending champion to illustrate her dominance, as she beat Canada’s silver medalist Marianne St-Gelais by 0.659 seconds – a margin rarely seen in the sprints. Further gold medals followed in the 1000m, with Wang seeing off USA hope Katherine Reutter, and in the 3000m ladies relay as the Chinese quartet set a world record. With Zhou Yang grabbing the 1500m gold, China completed a clean sweep of the ladies’ events.
   Seeking a return to these glory days, the Chinese skating authorities sought out Wang. And the now 35-year-old, who also runs a successful business selling sportswear in China, has lost little time in making her mark.
   First, Wang gathered 140 of China’s top skaters for a two-month training camp in order to prepare for the 2019/20 season. Then she set about ensuring they were being told the right things.
   In July, Wang appointed Kim Sun-tae – the man credited with building the foundations for South Korea’s impressive PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Short Track Speed Skating performance – as head coach of China’s Short Track Speed Skating programme. He has been joined by a handful of other foreign coaches, including Canada’s Nagano 1998 gold medalist Derrick Campbell.
   "Miss Wang and I are good friends, so I am very happy to come here to help more Chinese skaters get better,” Kim told Xinhua following his appointment in July.
   Given that 33 out of the 62 medals China has won at the Winter Olympic Games have come in Short Track Speed Skating since the discipline was introduced at the Lake Placid 1980 Games, the pressure on Kim and Wang is significant. But Wang has shown throughout her career that she flourishes under the weight of such expectation.
