As the saying goes, "the mother is worried about children traveling thousands of miles." According to Jiangsu media, when the Chinese women's volleyball team was in Tokyo for the Olympics, they interviewed the mothers of two NT players.
Jiang Qiuhan, Zhang Changning's mother, revealed: "the national team has been under closed training recently, so we didn't go to Beijing to see Zhang Changning off. To be honest, I do miss my daughter."
Gong Xiangyu's mother, Wei Jiaping, said: "the last time I saw Gong Xiangyu, it was Chinese New Year (i.e. on 12 Feb 2021). Since then, she has been training with the national team or playing on behalf of the provincial team. She has never seen Gong Xiangyu again. It should have been nearly half a year. I miss her very much."
