Gong Yani started her career as a synchronised swimmer when she was six years old. Originally from Wenzhou, in Zhejiang, her father believed she would have the chance of a better life if she joined the team. Her life since then has been through many ups and downs as she has struggled to progress to the senior team and have a shot at competing in the National championships. Her ultimate goal is to join the Chinese Olympic team. Coming back from a career threatening injury Yani is now captain of the Hunan Provincial team and working hard towards her goal.
