KAZAN Camiseta Roger Martinez Mundial 2018 , Russia, July 11 (Xinhua) -- She is called "Chinese mother" by Mexico's "diving queen" Paola Espinosa. She is awarded the "Order of the Aztec Eagle", the highest decoration awarded to foreigners in Mexico.

Her name is Ma Jin, an easygoing Chinese woman and hardworking diving coach.

In 2002, Mexico signed a deal with Beijing to import Chinese coaches. Ma was among them to come to the unfamiliar country which is far away from China in 2003.

"I miss my home, but I love my divers more Camiseta Abel Aguilar Mundial 2018 ," Ma, who leads her Mexican team competing at the Kazan Universiade told Xinhua.

At the very beginning of her arrival in Mexico, even the language was a problem, not to mention the cultural difference and the customs. Although experiencing a hard time at the start of her stay in Mexico, Ma has become acclimatized now and can speak fluent Spanish.

"I always believe the motto of survival of the fitness. When you come to a new place, you cannot change the environment Camiseta Carlos Bacca Mundial 2018 , you have to change yourself," said Ma.

After Ma's arrival, changes were huge in the past 10 years, not only to herself, but also to Mexico's diving.

Due to Espinosa's triumph, Ma is considered a hero in Mexico and has been feted by the Mexican president. Even the Mexican journalist can pronounce Ma's name in a decent Chinese accent.

"People in Mexico love football, but diving has become an important sport in the country, now the government has paid more and more attention to the sport and increased the investment Camiseta Wilmar Barrios Mundial 2018 ," said Ma.

"The overall strength of the diving in Mexico is increasing, and more and more young divers want me to help them."

In order to get the trust from divers, Ma adapted to a softer way in training, not only focusing on technique, but also doing a lot from heart communication.

Ma said that nowadays, her divers would send her a message saying "we love you" every night. "It really touches me a lot Camiseta Stefan Medina Mundial 2018 ," said Ma. "The feeling is just like when I see them stand on the podium. Both of them can make me happy."

However, being in a foreign country for 10 years, Ma felt more and more homesick.

"I have participated in the Olympics twice, to be frank, that's enough, but if I go back to China now Camiseta Oscar Murillo Mundial 2018 , I will feel sorry for those young divers who trust me and come to seek for my guide. Because of such sentiment, I have to persist in."

Ma said she will accompany Espinosa and other national teammates until the 2016 Rio Olympics. "After that, I don't know what my plan is."
