Yao gives first interview since ankle surgery

January 20th, 2011

Earlier this week Yao gave his first interview since his ankle surgery a couple of weeks ago. In anticipation of Chinese President Hu Jintao’s visit to the U.S., a CCTV crew got Yao’s thoughts (in Chinese) on a variety of topics, including the Chinese President’s visit to the U.S., a quote that Barack Obama attributed to Yao, and several other topics. I had a feeling that Yao would be interviewed about the Chinese President’s visit. It’s just too big of a deal for Yao not to be asked about it. You can read Raymond’s translation of the interview by clicking here.

Below is an abridged version of the interview (in Chinese). If you encounter a problem with it playing below, try this link.

    A few years back Yao had a custom bike made for him. Im guessing that riding a bike after ankle surgery is going to be just what the doctor ordered. The link to a blog below might be of interest to the man.
