Abstract Resume

Background:New media has changed the ways people receive and disseminate information and also reshaped the time, space and human perception of time and space. It has become one of the
core strength of the social media framework. Major sports events are often not only the world's most influential sporting event, but also the world's most remarkable media events. Extensive media
coverage and a large number of audience provide the strategic opportunity for sports news. From the perspective of communication, the media plays the role of linking connections of different political
and national ideology. Nationalism is the one of the fundamental principles of attracting audience's attention on the global sporting event by all the media and advertisers. As a politicized media,
the nation's imagination and creativity are the most important news topics of news coverage. Thus, in comparison with the traditional media, new media has played an increasingly important role in
spreading sports culture, shaping the national image and enhancing national identity.
