As the Olympic games steam ahead in Rio, some Chinese specialties have caught the eyes of foreign athletes.

Ever since Brazil was seriously hit by the Zika outbreak, many competitors have expressed concern over this year's Olympic Games.

Some delegations are equipped with anti-mosquito wrist straps and anti-mosquito sportswear, while the bed nets brought by Chinese athletes have astonished the Olympic village most of all.

Many foreign media reported that the bed nets served as a kind of magic anti-mosquito weapon.

Chinese gymnast Feng Zhe said on his Twitter-like Weibo account that a foreign athlete came to him to buy a mosquito net.

Apart from bed nets, the traditional Chinese cupping treatment is also popular among foreign athletes.

The round brown marks left by cupping have been seen on many American and Australian athletes' bodies.
