Chinese gymnastic icon Li Ning in June is set to return to Montreux, Switzerland, where he won gold in the inaugural Arthur Gander Memorial event 32 years ago, to -enhance the -exchanges between the two countries. Speaking ahead of his trip to Montreux, Li, a three-time Olympic gold medalist at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Games, said he hopes his journey could see more cooperation between the two sides. After retiring from competition in 1988, the “Prince of Gymnastics” set up a company in his own name specializing in sports equipment in 1990. The brand has become extremely popular in China.But Li was cagey about revealing any sponsorship deals with Swiss teams or clubs -during his forthcoming trip, saying it should be “decided by the market.” China has concluded a cooperation agreement with the Swiss sports body for the 2020 Youth Olympic Winter Games in Lausanne and the 2022 -Winter Olympic Games in Beijing.
