A situation that female athletes compete better than male athletes has emerged. However, in mass sports, women are a small group, forming a striking contrast with the women in competitive sports. Women’s sports play an important part in the development of Chinese sports cause. To some extent, women’s participation in sports can reflect the progress and civilization of the Chinese nation. How to motivate women to participate in sports to give a full play in the socialist material and spiritual construction is a top issue faced with us.
