The First-time Challenge of Indoor Snowboard Skiing by Kylie and Kate : Turns Out It’s Extremely Difficult!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1AUttmgoSvM Following the previous assignment of dispatching BBOLD representatives to learn about stand-up paddle boarding, the BBOLD representatives are now facing a new challenge: snowboard skiing! As winter approaches, many people plan to travel abroad to destinations such as Niseko and Hakuba in Japan, or ski resorts in Korea, Europe, and America. However, skiing is a sport that requires a high level of skill and can be quite dangerous, so it is advisable to receive professional training before attempting it. Lack of basic training can result in accidents and injuries while attempting to ski during a trip. Since most trips only have a few days for practice, it is often insufficient time to develop the necessary skills. So, how can we practice sk...

Interviewing with open water swimmer Nip Tsz Yin

The open water swimming event made its debut on the Asian Games stage, attracting attention from the public and various sectors. The event generally involves outdoor swimming in the sea, lakes, or rivers. The biggest challenge is not only the athletes' physical and mental condition, endurance, and willpower, but also their ability to judge water conditions. Tides, surface currents, and wind resistance are the main determining factors for completion time. During the competition, swimmers start swimming in the sea at the same time without a separate lane to swim in. When as many as 50 or 60 people jump into the sea at the same time, there is no actual limit on the distance between athletes, resulting in fierce competition and a high risk of colliding with other athletes or physical conta...

Interviewing Fencer Valerie Cheng and 3×3 Basketball Player Kwan Hoi Pui

Exciting events are coming up in the Asian Games, including volleyball, sailing, fencing, and 3x3 basketball. Fencer Valerie Cheng, who had a perfect record in the Singapore Fencing Satellite tournament, is in great form and has high expectations from the public. Although the satellite tournament is a good warm-up opportunity before the Asian Games, Valerie Cheng doesn't let the results of the satellite tournament affect her mindset and approaches the Asian Games with a calm attitude. Although a "calm mind" may not always overcome pressure, Valerie Cheng believes that learning to coexist with pressure can turn it into motivation. She constantly reminds herself not to be overly fearful and doesn't specifically reduce stress for herself, which shows that she has strong psychological qualiti...

How did Stand-Up Paddleboarding become a popular watersport to girls even when they aren’t sporty and energetic?

Girls who enjoy water sports are often associated with traits like being active, sunny, lively, athletic, and skilled swimmers. Have you ever felt influenced by these stereotypes, especially if you're not someone who typically engages in outdoor activities? Perhaps you've been invited to a water activity party by friends, but lacked the confidence to participate or assumed it wasn't for you without trying it out? As an editor, I have many friends who don't consider themselves strong swimmers and often view water sports as something that involves a lot of falling and potential danger. However, they still love the ocean and enjoy watching it from the shore. The truth is, there are relatively calm and peaceful water sports options that allow you to enjoy the therapeutic power of the o...
