Top 2,洪(hóng)荒(huāng)之(zhī)力(lì) (Prehistorical powers)

 

National swimmer Fu Yuanhui not only won a bronze medal at the Rio Olympic Games, but also scored a win with viewers in China in a now-iconic TV interview.

When told she had qualified for the final, Fu pulled a comically exaggerated face and declared: “I have used all my prehistoric powers to swim!”

‘Prehistoric powers’, or “honghuangzhili”, was swiftly adopted as a term for an unstoppable force, while Fu became an internet darling.

 

This term is originally from a popular mythological TV series. Hong huang zhi li is a power which can destroy the world and change the land into sky.
