NEW YEAR'S INTERVIEW: Zhu Ting - "My next goal is to be European and Turkish champion"

4771 0

She is one of the most talented and most powerful female volleyball players in the World and WoV Best Female Player of 2016. With only 22 years, she became Olympic winner and MVP of Rio 2016, so we think there is no need to present her any further, because when you say "women's volleyball" you mean Zhu Ting!

  

This summer Zhu Ting has signed for Turkey's VakıfBbank İstanbul and delighted, not only her fans, but also fans from all over Europe with the way she played. Chinese star has accepted to do a New Year's interview for WoV.

Do you miss China?

Yes, I miss it because my family is there"

What do you think about Turkey?

“I think Turkey is a beautiful country. People here are nice."

What do you like to eat in Europe, since food in China is very different?

Actually, I like to eat fish and beef here

Did you learn some Turkish words and is how is your English now?

"I have learned some Turkish numbers and greetings. At the same time, I'm learning also volleyball terms from coaches and teammates while training."

 

For how long do you plan to stay in Europe?

I hope to stay here for about 4 years."

What is the difference between Asian and European volleyball?

"Asian volleyball mostly relies on outside hitters while European volleyball relies on opposites."

Did you expect to win Olympic Games and to be the MVP of the same?

"We didn’t expect to win Olympic Games but we all had the same belief in getting one of the medals. I think that getting a gold medal is much more meaningful than MVP because without the help of my teammates I would not be able to be the MVP."

What is the next goal in your career since you already won Olympics and all we know that the Olympics are the top of  each career.

"My goal is to be the champion of the CEV Champions League and Turkish Superleague."

FIVB are testing new rules at WCH U23: Serve (VIDEO)

I honestly don't see the use of changing every time the rules. People at some point don't know anymore what the exact rules are, and at this time I'm talking about player, coaches, ... , people with much affection for the sport. People that don't know the sport, can't follow at all this evolution of rules. In consequence they lose interest in the sport and stop following it.

Also if this rule would apply, this will for many youth teams an issue to learn this kind of services, as they don't have the room behind the court as the professional player to learn this kind of service without landing in the court. I know courts where there's only 1 meter behind the service lines.

If we want the game to become more spectacular again, we should simply raise the hight of the net. People are becomming taller and taller and jumping higher and higher, the logical evolution would be to raise the net hight.

IT will impact the service presure and the attack presure, resulting in longer rally's.

Thanks just my personal opinion.

I wonder who has the same idea? Reply
