The Chinese Team was on a vacation after they arrived back from Rio de Janeiro last month. It gave them the opportunity to entertain themselves and not think about any training and competitions.
Just pure fun.
Since 2012, the Chinese National Team has started working for the next Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. That’s how invested the strongest team in Table Tennis is when it comes to the Olympic Games. Naturally, their efforts paid off with a clean sweep of all the Olympic golds in four events.
After all the hard work comes the fun. As soon as the Chinese Olympic delegation arrived back to China, a series of events were already lined up for the champions.
One of their stops was in Hong Kong. Table Tennis stars, Ma Long, Zhang Jike, Xu Xin, Ding Ning, Liu Shiwen and Li Xiaoxia were very much welcomed by their fans. These champions also took the opportunity to unwind and interact with their supporters.
Ma Long the 2016 Olympic Singles champion even showed a different talent aside from playing table tennis.
However, those happy days are gone now. The Chinese Team is slowly getting back to serious business as they start with the domestic competitions. The Chinese National Championships is being held this week in Anshan while the Chinese Super League will officially commence next month.
