How old were you when you started playing table tennis?

I started playing table tennis when I was just 7 years old.

What has been the highlight of your table tennis career so far?

Winning the Olympic Gold medal at the 2012 London Olympic Games. This was always one of my biggest dreams, so it is definitely the highlight.

What is your next big goal for table tennis?

My next goal is to achieve another big dream, to win the World Championships. So my goal is to win WTTC in Paris in one month’s time.

Congratulations on winning the Olympic Games! How did it feel to have an Olympic Gold Medal around your neck after winning the final?

I was very excited and of course very grateful, thank you to everybody for their support, especially to my coach, without him I wouldn’t be here today.

You have won 3 World Championships singles medals, 2 silver and 1 bronze. Do you feel you still have a chance to win a WTTC singles Gold Medal?

My dream is always to be Olympic Champion and World Champion. I won the Olympic Games, I believe now I can have a good chance to win the World Championships.

Who do you think is the best women’s table tennis player of all time? Many would say Deng Yaping or Zhang Yining, what do you think?

Deng Yaping.

You spend most of your time training quite intensely in the Chinese National Squad, do you have much time to see your friends and family during the year too?

I really don’t have much time to see my friends and family. Most of my time is spent with my coach and my teammates, only the Chinese New Year holiday time I get maybe 4 or 5 days to see my family and friends. Very sad, right?

Which country around the world has been your favourite to travel to in your table tennis career?

England, because I win my gold medal there 😉

What do you like to spend your free time doing?

When I’m free I like to go shopping or spend time talking to my family and friends. As long as I spent time with family it doesn’t matter what we do. I just love my family that’s all.
