Chinese mainland Olympians received thunderous applause during their display of athletic skill and personal charm to a full house at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium in Hong Kong on Saturday.

At the beginning of the show, Liu Yang, gold medalist of the men's rings at the Tokyo Olympics, and Lyu Xiaojun, winner of the men's 81kg weightlifting in Tokyo, took to the stage to show their skills.

Amidst the continuous cheering, table tennis champions Ma Long and Xu Xin's appearance pushed the atmosphere to a climax. They first staged an exhibition match and then partnered with Hong Kong athletes for multiple rounds of ping-pong.

The exquisite skills, humor, and friendliness of the Olympians drew applause round after round. At the end of the show, the athletes sang the song "Red Sun" with Hong Kong's famous singer Hacken Lee, bringing the event to a passionate conclusion.

The delegation of Chinese mainland Olympians arrived in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region on Friday afternoon for a three-day visit.
