Chinese Women’s Volleyball superstar Zhu Ting has just returned home after finishing highly successful season in which she won gold medal in the 2016 Rio Olympics and in the 2016/2017 Turkish League, being awarded MVP at both tournaments.


Now, Zhu Ting turns to preparations of the national team for the Asian Qualification Tournament for the 2018 FIVB World Championship, but before this, she will take part in the traditional competition in China called the National Games which is held once every four years. This year, Tianjin is the organizer. There, she will play with her former team Henan who made her famous and from which she moved to the Turkish VakıfBank İstanbul last summer to win the 2017 CEV Champiosn League.

Zhu Ting had a warm welcome at the Beijing airport by several dozen of fans who cheered her name and greeted her with banners containing words of support for everything she did in the past year.

„I did not expect so many people to come to the airport to welcome me, the enthusiasm of the fans really touched me,“ Zhu Ting stated upon landing to the Chinese capital.

Recall that she recently agreed to extend contract with VakıfBank for 2017/2018.

What is this mess? Does she return to her club or not?
And 'dozen of fans' means only 12. What is so spectacular about it??

Re: @Nobody Cares She's 26 and her dream to come play in Europe stopped in a 12-placed team??? Ajcharaporn could have had many other better choices, even to play in a European Cup in a Romanian team. Her agency is so incompetent! Now she'll play against relegation :( So sad!
