"Live a well-off life and be healthy". In recent years, with the progress of society, the development of economy and the continuous improvement of people's living standard, the masses of farmers and herdsmen in Xigaze City have an increasingly strong demand for fitness. "I am very excited to participate in this sports meeting. This is a grand mass festival with full rural flavor," says Tsering Ngordrup, from Xaitongmoin County, who has attended the football game this time. He thinks the sports meeting is very down-to-earth and hopes relevant departments to carry out more similar activities in the future.
