The Wider Image: Amid COVID shutdowns, Chinese women flock to skateboarding
Mina Zhao, 40, a member of Beijing Girls Surfskating Community, waves goodbye to her mother, Zhang Wenmin, 69, before leaving home for a practise session with her women's club, in Beijing, China July 6, 2022. Zhao, who organises children activities, gave surfskating a try in May when she was unable to host events due to the lockdown. "Through this sport, what we want to explore more is ourselves. Being ourselves is more important than the world's stereotypical view of us," she said. REUTERS/Tingshu Wang SEARCH “CHINA WANG SKATEBOARDING” FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH “WIDER IMAGE” FOR ALL STORIES.
