- The word is a Chinese figure of speech or idiom. "加" means add or increase, "油" means oil or fuel or gasoline, so it literally means "add gas," "add fuel." "increase energy". It started in the '60s and '70s in Macau Grand Prix when people start chanting "加油", urging the drivers to step on the gas petal to increase speed. When people say "中国 (China), 加油", it can be loosely translated as "Go, go, China". It is mainly used during sporting events, games or competitions, or just to encourage someone.
