Why the Chinese should work out

China must urgently address the physical fitness of the nation's youth or run the risk of raising a generation incapable of fighting the Japanese in a future war, the head of the country's top sports university said Thursday. ...

"It is time for the Chinese nation to improve the physical fitness of our next generation," said [Beijing Sports University president Yang Hua]. "If we miss the next three to five years a whole generation will be next to useless.

"If there was another war against Japan, would the younger Chinese be able to fight the Japanese one-on-one?"
