Hou Yifan looks like she has grown and matured quite a bit. Or maybe it's the make up and dress? The last pictures of saw of her, she still looked like a kid.

Not too sure about WHY Lin Dan and Li Na were absent.

But for Liu Xiang, it was a clash of commitment, I believe.


It was Nike China 30th anniversary yesterday.

As Nike is his endorser and boss 米饭班主, it's understandable he had to skip the China Top 10 Award Ceremony, and instead participated in Nike China's 30th anniversary celebration.


Yi Jianlian was also there too.

Well he was also one of the performers at the ceremony; he was asked to sing for the audience.

He acted like a small fan, and like Hou Yifan, they ran around asking for photos and autographs from Yao Ming, and other celebrities that were present.

Here is a photo of him with Miss World 2007, Zhang Zilin.
