China's Olympic gold medalists Qin Kai, Tian Liang and Guo Wenjun were nominated as ambassador candidates for China's 14th National Games here on Wednesday.
According to the event's organizing committee, the final 30 candidates will face a public vote and on-site selection sessions this month, with the final five official ambassadors to be decided later in the year.
Qin Kai, 34, was born in Xi'an, capital city of China's northwestern province of Shaanxi, and pocketed Olympic golds in 2008 and 2012. Qin also notably proposed to fellow diver He Zi right after she won silver in the women's 3m individual springboard at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
Fellow diver Tian Liang also scooped two Olympic gold medals, in 2000 and 2004, while sport shooter Guo Wenjun took golds at the 2008 and 2012 Olympics.
