The waiting games

China Daily | Updated: 2020-03-26 09:33
As the nation's most successful ball-sport team, the Chinese women's volleyball squad could probably do with an injection of youth as it seeks to retain its title at next year's rescheduled Tokyo Games.

Superstar spiker Zhu Ting, 25, still has a long career ahead of her, however some of the team's other core players, including 30-year-old starting setter Ding Xia and 33-year-old second spiker Yan Ni, face a tough challenge to remain in prime physical condition for another year.

Yet the postponement will allow for a longer training program under the guidance of legendary coach Lang Ping (pictured above with her players) and potentially offer more opportunities for the squad's younger talent to step up their game. REUTERS
