Former Winter Olympic champion Yang Yang became the first Chinese to be elected as the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) vice president here on Thursday.

周四,冬奥会冠军杨扬成为第一位当选世界反兴奋/剂机构副主席的中国人。

The election taking place in the Polish city on the last day of the three-day Fifth World Conference on Doping in Sport also saw Poland's sprinter-turned Minister of Sport and Tourism Witold Banka elected as president to succeed Scottish Craig Reedie.

在为期三天的第五届世界体育兴奋/剂大会的最后一天,波兰城市华沙举行了选举。在这次选举中,波兰运动员出身的体育和旅游部长维托尔德·班卡接替苏格兰人克雷格·里迪当选该机构的主席。

Yang, the first Chinese to take a leadership role in WADA's 20-year history, said she looks forward to working with Banka, a young politician at 35, in the next three years.

杨扬是世界反兴奋/剂机构20年历史上第一位担任领导职务的中国人。她说,她期待未来3年与35岁的年轻政治家班卡合作。

"He is very young but he was an athlete before and also has so much experience in politics. I believe if we can work closely together, we can do a good job," she said.

杨扬称:“他很年轻,但他以前是一名运动员,在政治方面也很有经验。我相信,如果我们能密切合作,我们就能把工作做好。”

Reedie gave his best wishes to Banka and Yang after the election.

选举结束后,李迪向班卡和杨扬致以最美好的祝愿。

"I wish you two every success possible," said the 78-year-old, who has been in the position for six years.

“我祝愿你们两个取得尽可能的成功,”担任该职务六年之久的78岁的李迪说道。

Yang, 43, will start her term at the beginning of next year, succeeding Norwegian politician Linda Helleland, who will step down at the end of 2019.

现年43岁的杨扬将于明年年初开始她的任期,接替将于2019年底卸任的挪威政治家琳达·海尔兰。

Yang became China's first Winter Olympic champion at Salt Lake City in 2002, when she took two gold medals and a silver in the short track speedskating events. She was an IOC member from 2010 until 2018, when she was appointed IOC Marketing Commission member.

杨扬在2002年盐湖城冬奥会上获得两枚短道速滑金牌和一枚银牌,成为中国第一位冬奥会冠军。2010年至2018年,她被任命为国际奥委会市场部委员会委员。

She was nominated in May by the IOC Executive Board as the representative of the Olympic Movement for the vice presidency of WADA. She admitted that she was a little surprised when she first got the news.

她于5月被国际奥委会执行委员会提名为奥林匹克运动代表,竞选世界反兴奋/剂机构副主席。她承认当她第一次得到这个消息时有点惊讶。

"Frankly speaking, I was surprised by the nomination, although I did once work in the athlete's commission of WADA," Yang, one of the most decorated skaters in history, told Xinhua in an exclusive interview here.

“坦率地说,我对这个提名感到很惊讶,尽管我曾经在世界反兴奋/剂机构运动员委员会工作过,”史上获奖最多的滑冰运动员之一杨扬在接受新华社的独家采访时说。

Surprised as she was, Yang took pride in what the nomination and successful election stand for.

尽管感到意外,杨扬还是为自己的提名和成功当选感到自豪。

"I feel very proud not just for myself, but also for China," Yang said. "I am entrusted with this new responsibility thanks to the IOC and WADA's confidence in my experience and ability. At the same time, I think it also shows the international society's recognition in China's efforts against doping."

“我感到非常自豪,不仅为自己,也为中国,”杨扬说。“感谢国际奥委会和世界反兴奋/剂机构对我的经验和能力的信任,我被赋予了这项新的职责。同时,我认为这也表明了国际社会对中国反兴奋/剂工作努力的认可。”

Yang said that she would face a daunting task in the future. WADA has gone through "some of the most difficult periods of the organization," as IOC President Thomas Bach put it in his speech here at the opening of the conference, and the challenge remains for the young leadership.

杨扬表示,她未来将面临一项艰巨的任务。正如国际奥委会主席托马斯·巴赫在大会开幕式上所说,世界反兴奋/剂机构经历了“本组织最困难的一些时期”,年轻的领导层面临的挑战依然存在。

"WADA is a more comprehensive organization than the IOC as it has been formed by parties from sport and governments. It is like a whole new world to me," Yang added.

“世界反兴奋/剂机构是一个比国际奥委会更全面的组织,因为它是由体育和政府部门组成的。这对我来说就像一个全新的世界。”

"I was an athlete and my passion is to work for the interest of athletes," Yang said.

“我曾是一名运动员,我的热情是为运动员的利益而工作,”杨扬说。

Li Yingchuan, vice director of China's State General Administration of Sport and also a member of WADA Foundation Board, hailed the election of Yang.

中国国家体育总局副局长、世界反兴奋/剂机构基金会理事李颍川对杨扬的当选表示祝贺。

"Yang was an excellent athlete and is experienced in working in international organizations. Although she may face big challenges in this difficult and complicated time, China's State General Administration of Sport will give full support to her," Li said.

杨扬是一名优秀的运动员,有丰富的国际组织工作经验。尽管在这个困难和复杂的时期,她可能会面临巨大的挑战,但中国国家体育总局将全力支持她,”李说。
