It seemed like right after last night's Artistry on Ice show, Yao Ming sent his wife and daughter home and travelled directly to Nanjing.

He showed up this morning at 09:00 am at the campus of Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics for the opening ceremony of 2013 Asia Pacific Team Basketball Training Camp held by NBA China.


From the photos shown, he was STILL EXTREMELY POPULAR amongst university students and the campers from other countries in Asia. He gave a few words of encouragement to the youngsters there at the camp, and took group photos with them.

He's still popular, but only to college kids now.

Yao Ming showed up this afternoon in a co-operation contract signing ceremony with Marriott International in JW Marriott Hotel in Shanghai today (June 19).

Marriot International announced a 3-year co-operation project with Yao Foundation, under which Marriott International will donate RMB 5 Million to Yao Foundation to build/refurbish 3 Project Hope primary schools in Southwest China, as well as to serve as funding for next year's 2014 ~ 15 Yao Foundation Hope Primary School basketball season.

In today's signing ceremony, Marriott International's Asia Pacific President Simon Cooper also presented Yao Ming with a cheque (RMB 271135) from contributions/donations of Marriott staffs to Yao Foundation.

And after the contract signing ceremony, 10 reporters from the press were drawn out to shoot free throws; Marriott International promised to add RMB 2000 for each free throw scored. Although only 1 reporter managed to score 1 free throw, Marriott International nevertheless donated another extra RMB 20,000 to Yao Foundation.

And before the reporters shooting the free throws, Yao Ming was asked to demonstrate how to shoot from the free throw line.

It was the first time since his retirement 2 years ago that Yao Ming demonstrated shooting in the public. He looked nervous, but nevertheless he hit his free throw nothing but the net, and to the applause of the participating press reporters.

Big Yao should have been allowed in the women's locker room to take photos with the female ice skaters.
