Family's storied Olympic past giving naturalized athlete extra motivation

XI'AN, Shaanxi-Newly naturalized Chinese athlete Zheng Ninali dominated the women's heptathlon at last week's athletics test event for the 14th National Games.

The 22-year-old won all seven disciplines, but wasn't satisfied with her result as she scored 6,153 points, just shy of the 6,240-point qualification mark for this summer's Tokyo Olympics.

Canada-born Zheng, whose birth name is Nina Schultz, is eager to make up for her grandmother Zheng Fengrong's regrets on missing the 1956 Olympics.
