Athletes of Chinese national teams will eat food provided by Quanjude, as the National Training Base in Beijing, which is affiliated to the State General Sports Administration, has picked the famous Beijing roast duck restaurant to be its food provider for the next four years.

The restaurant will also give financial support to 14 national teams including ping-pong, volleyball, diving, track and field and gymnastics.

China's anti-doping agency will test Quanjude's food to ensure that it is safe for the athletes. The restaurant's chefs will also create new dishes keeping in mind the athletes' need for balanced nutrition.

The 151-year-old restaurant is popular among tourists visiting Beijing, and has provided food for many international events like the Beijing Olympics in 2008, the Shanghai Expo in 2010 and the APEC event in Beijing in 2014.
