In 1980, the Chinese women's volleyball team lost to the champion Jiangsu men's volleyball team in a training match.

However, the hardships, perseverance, and never-give-up spirit of that generation of women's volleyball players have been vividly portrayed on the screen.

In the 1981 World Cup final in Osaka, the Chinese team played against the Japanese team and won the first world championship for the three major ball games in China. The powerful and distinctive commentary by Song Shixiong instantly brought the audience back to that passionate and sunny era.

In the 2008 Beijing Olympic group stage, the Chinese team played against the American team coached by Lang Ping at the time. The coach of the Chinese team stood on the sidelines, focused and smiling. The struggles experienced by Lang Ping and that generation of Chinese women's volleyball players were heart-wrenching.

In 2013, Lang Ping officially returned to coach the Chinese women's volleyball team, leading them into a new historical phase.

In the quarterfinals of the 2016 Rio Olympics, the Chinese team played against the host and top-ranked Brazilian team, eventually winning the gold medal.
