A girl practices during gymnastics lessons at the Shanghai Yangpu Youth Amateur Athletic School in Shanghai, China, March 23, 2016. China's sports system has been enormously successful since the country returned to the Olympic fold in 1980, culminating with the host nation topping the medals' table at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. And yet, with the Rio de Janeiro Games less than three months away, the system is beginning to break down due to the shifting demographics of a more prosperous nation. Some schools have closed and others are adjusting the way they work. Some, like the Shanghai Yangpu Youth Amateur Athletic School, are going into kindergartens to advertise gymnastics as an after-school play time activity to parents. "We call it happy gymnastics," said principal Zhu Zengxiang. REUTERS/Aly Song SEARCH "CHINA OLYMPIC SCHOOL" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "THE WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES

A girl practises a Mallakhamb pose while suspended from a rope at the Shree Samartha Vyayam Mandir in Mumbai, October 19, 2012. Mallakhamb is an ancient Indian sport which originated as a complementary exercise for wrestling, but is now practised as a sport in itself. The name is a combination of the words "malla", which means athlete or strong man, and "khamba", which means pole. Athletes perform a variety of yogic and gymnastic poses while suspended from a rope or on a pole. Practitioners say that the sport not only develops a healthy and strong body, but also strengthens willpower and helps compose the mind. Picture taken on October 19, 2012.

A young male gymnast slides down a pole as a boy looks on at a gymnastic hall in the Shichahai sports school in Beijing July 2, 2008. The school is the biggest sports boarding school in the Chinese capital with around 600 students and 80 coaches, and has a history of training the country's future Olympic hopefuls. China's state sports system certainly has its critics but many of those who have benefited from it are convinced it remains the secret of their country's sporting success.
