For almost a month, the diminutive Li Man has been working at an altitude of over 2,000 meters, tirelessly carrying a medical rescue kit on her back that weighs up to 15 kilograms.

As one of the 38 Chinese rescue staff on duty to protect the para athletes at the National Alpine Skiing Centre in Yanqing district during the Beijing Winter Paralympics Games, Li and her team members call themselves the "ski doctors".

"We come from different hospitals and departments, such as anesthesiology, orthopedics, emergency room, internal medicine, and stomatology, to ensure rescue work is as comprehensive as possible," said Li, who comes from the China Rehabilitation Research Center in Beijing. She has remained in Yanqing district since January.
