Zhang Chunyu rests on the sidelines after playing ice hockey at a makeshift rink on a frozen lake, in Anshan, Liaoning province, China, January 1, 2022. The players are mostly in their 50s and 60s, their passion for the sport in sharp contrast to wider indifference, aggravated by the unremarkable men's hockey team that is to compete for China in the Beijing Games next month. For the Anshan players, though, hockey has never been about smashing Olympic records or playing in an elite league. REUTERS/Tingshu Wang SEARCH "WANG ANSHAN HOCKEY" FOR THIS STORY.
