Spirit of Volleyball
Last Saturday I took the high speed rail from Beijing to Tianjin (About 2 hours driving in the past), it only now takes 20 minutes. I visited my friend Zhang Na there, who was the member of the gold medal winning Chinese women’s volleyball national teams at the 2003 Japan World Cup and 2004 Athens Olympic Games. She is now the vise president of the Volleyball Academy of China. She gave me a tour of the Tianjin Women’s volleyball team training facility and her office building, watched the training of her young students, meet couple of formal and current national players (including the US national team member Destinee Hooker and Zhu Ting). After a nice hotpot dinner we went to watch the league game.
