Mo began by showing his arduous road from a small town to the world arena through a video of his sprinting career. He then shared his career highlights, including winning the 2013 World Junior Championships men's 100-meter – the first Chinese athlete to win that event – and performing the ninth track miracle in the 2015 World Athletics Championships 4 x100-meter relay.
In the question-and-answer session after the lecture, Mo said perseverance and love that had made him train year after year. He said he wanted to regard these two qualities as the strongest weapons to achieve his dreams. Students who asked questions also received souvenirs signed by Mo.
