Zoomlion - a leading high-end equipment manufacturing enterprise – continues to foster the spirit of sport through its ongoing support of China's athletes while also encouraging Zoomlion employess to engage in sporting activities, and assisting in the construction of major sports stadium projects.

For over 17 consecutive years, Zoomlion (Zoomlion Heavy Industry Science & Technology Co., Ltd) has supported the Hunan weightlifting team to reach the top spot on the podium.

Li Jiangtao, president of the Trade Union of Zoomlion notes "At Zoomlion, we embrace the sporting spirit and believe the most important thing in life is not only to win, but to take part. We empower all athletes to achieve their dreams, from hobbyists to those performing at the highest level.”

Zoomlion also hosts a series of Youth Fun Run events across multiple cities in China to foster a passion for sports in the next generation of athletes. The most recent one held in Changsha's Orange Isle on June 19 attracted over 500 participants.

Zoomlion employees around the world also embrace the sporting spirit by regularly taking part in team sports activities. In Australia, Zoomlion's team hiked the Kokoda Track Memorial Walk in Dandenong, Victoria. Meanwhile, in Southeast Asia, Zoomlion's Malaysia office formed a basketball team and regularly plays in local games, and the Thailand arm plays badminton on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
