  I think I played relatively well in the women's table tennis team competition at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics this time. I think I am also quite good. Maybe I have 80 points.

Especially in terms of my mentality, I think I have made progress.

  [Explanation] After the awards ceremony of the women's table tennis team competition, a group photo of the Chinese National Table Tennis Team and the Hong Kong Team of China sparked heated discussions on the Internet. People called it "Victory Meeting Master".

  In fact, before receiving the award, we wanted to take photos with the members of the Chinese national table tennis team, because our mobile phones were confiscated when we received the award.

Our coach also knew that we wanted to take a photo with them. Just after we presented the award, Liu Guoliang, Chairman of the Chinese Table Tennis Association invited us to take a photo together, and we rushed over to take this photo together happily.

  [Commentary] Du Kaixian told reporters that she is no stranger to the Chinese national table tennis team.

She also told reporters that during preparations for the Tokyo Olympics, the Hong Kong team of China and the Chinese national table tennis team participated in a training camp.

  Before we played in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, I myself (already) had 9 months in the Mainland (intensive training), and my teammates went to (intensified training) for two months.

Before the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, we went to the second team of the Chinese National Table Tennis Team.

Finally, when they warmed up, they also invited us to play in Weihai, Shandong.

Liu Guoliang, chairman of the Chinese Table Tennis Association, and Li Jing, coach of the Hong Kong women's table tennis team, have both coached me.

In fact, there is really a big improvement for us.

  [Explanation] Du Kaixian believes that the Chinese national table tennis team is a very good group and can learn a lot from them.

The unity and tenacity of the Chinese national table tennis team deeply infected her.

  In fact, many people in the Chinese national table tennis team are my idols, and many are my role models.

I went to (training) this time. When I practiced with the Chinese national table tennis team for a while, I watched how they practiced.

Many times we practice three classes until around 9 o'clock. The main players like Chen Meng, Liu Shiwen, and Sun Yingsha are still improving their physical fitness after 9 o'clock. I think these spirits are really worth learning.

  [Explanation] Du Kaixian said that she used to take the Chinese national table tennis team as an example and learn from them.

I hope that in the future she can also become a role model for others and lead the growth of young people who are younger than her.

  I also hope that I myself can be a role model, because many foreign players from the Mainland came to Hong Kong to help Hong Kong play.

At that time, they led us to grow up, and also led us to achieve results.

I hope that I can really mature and take young athletes who are younger than me.
