    Post Question: for "well"

    Example.
    The Western media sharply criticized China well before the opening ceremony. Reporters questioned attempts by the Chinese government to dilute problems pertaining to human rights, media abuse and Tibet.

    Questoin.
    A word "well" has many meaning.

    I wonder what a word "well" means in above context.

    That "well before" means 'a long time before' (= 'long before')
