Yao Ming Tops Chinese Celebrity Power Rankings

2006-03-10 10:48:38 CRIENGLISH.com

Yao Ming tops Forbes Chinese celebrity power rankings for a third time in a row.

Basketball star Yao Ming has topped the latest Forbes Chinese celebrity power rankings, despite his playing all year round out of China.

The 2.16 meter-tall super center has an all-round lead in both annual income and media coverage. This is the third time in a row for Yao Ming to stand atop other Chinese celebrities.

A pre-tax income of 170 million yuan, or over 20 million U.S. dollars (1 U.S. dollar = 8.03 RMB yuan) has put Yao Ming in the leading place. The money combines his salary with the U.S. NBA team Houston Rockets and endorsements with world renowned brands such as Nike and Visa.

He also had the most press coverage and the second highest number of website hits, according to the Chinese edition of Forbes.

An up and coming basketball star, Yi Jianlian from Guangdong, made his maiden appearance on the list, standing at 80th position.

Second on the list is the star hurdler Liu Xiang, also from Shanghai.

Fourteen more athletes have been included in the top 100.

Thats what drives Yao. All those haters, it gives Yao fire and intensity and gives him something to prove. Plus JVG always wants Yao to improve, so never says "Yao you are doing good and spectacular" so Yao never gets comfortable.
