The 28-year-old Grand Slam champion was tied for second place with Wang Manyu and Sun Yingsha after 10 rounds of the big circle in the top 12 teams of Chinese table tennis team, 7-3. He was doomed to fail to catch up with Chen Meng who lost 9-1, while Ding Ning was the loser against both Little Devil Kings.
Before the start of the Grand Cycle, National Table Tennis issued its Tokyo Strategy. The adjusted list of national team coaches was made public for the first time. However, the two-way choice between athletes and coaches in charge has not yet been made public. From the competition process, after Chen Bin left the national team for physical reasons, the coach in charge changed to a former national table tennis player who retired five years ago and now a female bishop in Shougang, Beijing. Practice Guo Yan.
This competition is also a running-in for Guo Shui and me. The way to break in is to keep talking before and after the race. Ding Ning said.
As for whether Guo Yan is a strict teacher or a good friend, Ding Ning said, When I am in charge of coaching, she will certainly put forward higher requirements for me. But at the same time, she can understand me better. At that time, she also played at a very high level and knew the psychology of athletes very well. I also hope that I can continue to work hard to meet her standards and requirements.
Is it good or bad to change coaches just over a year before the Tokyo Olympics? Ding Ning said that he did not want to think too much about this issue because it was meaningless. Even if I continue to cooperate with Chen, Im not sure that Tokyo will definitely win the championship. Now we are still competing, and everyone is working hard. What we can do is try our best to make ourselves stronger and face the challenges that lie ahead. Thats what I want to do now, she said.
