In summary, the reporter went to Kunming (where the China Woman National Team were training) and invited Ye Li out for an interview, and Ye Li told the reporter about how her romance with Yao Ming had started:

1. Their romance seriously started when Yao Ming travelled to Beijing from Shanghai in the early morning of the second day of Chinese New Year in 2001 to see Ye Li who was in Beijing for China National Team training; Yao waited down at Ye Li's dormitory in the snow; phoned Ye up and Ye hesitated to go out with Yao; at advices of her team mates, she finally agreed to go out for dinner with Yao. After dinner, Yao Ming happily travelled back to Shanghai on the same night.

2. According to Ye, when Yao was still in Shanghai, they seldom had chances to date like ordinary boys and girls as they had to take part in competition and training. Yao often took Ye out for midnight movies at the theatres. Yao also bought lots of stuff toys for Ye which she treasured and slept with at night time.

3. Before Yao went to Houston, it was Ye's birthday. Yao was busy, but he gave 5000 RMB to his friend who bought a full cart of stuff toy for Ye. Amongst the stuff toys was a big monkey (as Yao was born in the Year of the Monkey !!). When Ye received the stuff toys, there were so many that she could not keep them all in her dormitory. So she custodied a lot of the stuff toys at her team mates' rooms.

4. After Yao Ming returned from Houston, he was very busy in his various activities (like the May 11 SARS telethon). After he went to Beijing on May 12th, he did not travel immediately to QinHuangDao to rejoin the China National Team, but chose to stay behind in Beijing and squeezed out time to surprise Ye Li and the China Woman National Team during their training. The China Woman National Team travelled to Kunming on May 15 for centralized training, and Ye Li stayed behind in Beijing for another 3 days. During that 3 days, Yao and Ye trained together, and Yao coached Ye on some of her basketball skills as a center. Ye then flied to Kunming on the 18th and Yao departed for QinHuangDao shortly afterwards.

5. Ye and Yao belonged to the same team in Shanghai; they grew up and trained together and had known each other since they were kids. She did not revealed when their romance really started, or whether it started on that Chinese New Year day when Yao travelled to Beijing just to see her. But the definitive turning point could be when Yao went to NBA last October; due to her injury on her right knee, Yao arranged everything for Ye to travel to USA for treatment. Ye stayed for over a month there. Right after her stay, they both began to wear a red string on their wrists.

6. In her eyes, Yao Ming is almost perfect and unqiue. She did not watch NBA just because of Yao Ming; but she won't miss Yao Ming's matches if she got the chances; she would even tape some of them for later review at her spare time.

7. Ye Li is a Shanghainese, 22 years old. 1.9m; 83 Kg. She likes fashion and music; She plays forward for the Shanghai Dong Feng (Oriental); She was with the Asian Youth championship team of the China Woman Youth Team in 1998; she made the China National Team in 1999; she is fast and mobile, and played over 10 international games with the China Woman National Team. She missed the Woman World Championship and the Asian Games last year due to her injury. She has now recovered from her injury, and wish she could represent China again soon. She looks forwards to playing for WNBA in USA in future.

Hey, she looks a lot cuter with long hair...

Aww, one of those childhood affairs - sounds like Justin & Brit!...but we all know how that ended up. :o

Well, I'm sure Yao's burgeoning superstar status and subsequent groupie appeal will put pressure on their relationship, even though he seems to remain unfazed by it all...
