Chinanews Client Beijing August 19 Daily title: (East and West Questions • Chinese Athletes) Sun Yingsha: Liu Guoliang is a role model for the Paris Olympics and strives for full marks
Cute, cute and murderous. Two labels with very different meanings do not seem to fit on the same person.
But Sun Yingsha possesses this kind of magic.
On the field, her eyes are like a torch, swallowing the mountains and rivers with anger; outside the field, she is naive, an idol, and a darling.
From the beginning of 2017 to the Tokyo arena to turn things around, only four years. That cute baby face is the same as yesterday, but behind it is a more mature heart. She has not yet reached the age of 21, and she is already a “shaman” who can be a great task.
Clean heart and determined personality. As Liu Guoliang, Chairman of the Chinese Table Tennis Association said, Sun Yingsha conquered the world table tennis by virtue of strength and performance. “She is an idol and role model in the new era, not only in the field of table tennis, but a rising star in China’s sports world.”
In a recent conversation with Sino-Singapore Sports, Yingsha Sun shared her first participation in the Olympic Games. Her mental journey, and her indefinite expectation for the future.
China New Sports: Tokyo The Olympics have been over for a while, will you still think about the scenes on the field now? Which ones are the most impressive?
Sun Yingsha: I will definitely think back, because the memory in my mind is very deep, so now I still think of some scenes in the game, including the feeling on the field.
The most impressive place, I think I should be more clear about what needs to be strengthened in the future. The problem will definitely be found through the game, and it needs to be solved in time. I feel that I am more clear about the future direction of development.

Zhongxin Sports: If you score your performance in Tokyo on a 100-point scale, how much would you score? Why?
Sun Yingsha: I will play 80 to 85 points. Because the singles ultimately failed to win the gold medal, there will still be some regrets. But in terms of overall performance, I think the task has been completed, which is also an affirmation to myself.
Although I didn’t get the (singles) gold medal, I think I still have a lot of room for development and there are many places I can continue to improve. So throughout the game, I still scored 85 points for myself. With 15 points left, I think I can do my best, and I will continue to work hard.
China-Singapore Sports: Will these 15 points be mentioned in Paris in 3 years?
China-Singapore Sports: During this time, there have been many discussions about you and Mima Ito on the Internet. You are the same age, and you will definitely fight each other in the future.
Sun Yingsha: Indeed, I am as old as her. In fact, every time I play with her, I am very happy, because she has many advantages, which is worth learning, including her style of play and the changes in the game.
Every time we finish fighting with her, no matter whether we win or lose, we can always see the change and progress of the opponent. In fact, with the existence of an opponent like Ito, I will always force myself to speed up and improve continuously.

Zhongxin Sports: What role did Chairman Liu Guoliang play in your continuous progress?
Sun Yingsha: In the process of growing up in the past few years, Chairman Liu has helped me a lot. At every stage, Chairman Liu is guiding me and helping me to make progress, so I am very grateful to him. Chairman Liu is also a role model in my mind. He has a lot to learn from.
Zhongxin Sports: We all think that you are not only cute, but also optimistic. But training is boring after all. Do you feel irritable or depressed during the day-to-day practice?
Sun Yingsha: Sometimes I feel anxious, but overall it is fine. In fact, every day of training is fulfilling my dream. I will go all out to complete each training session. Although I may feel tired or anxious, I think I can resolve it.

Zhongxin Sports: What are you doing during this period of time after returning to China? Are you still used to living in isolation?
Sun Yingsha: Living in isolation is good. Just coming back from the Olympics, I think I can still calm down slowly, and then sum up the game.
I insist on physical training every day, so I have a more fulfilling life. In fact, I don’t play games very much, and I don’t usually play much. If there is time, I will study English.
Zhongxin Sports: This trip, how many pins (badges) did you get in total? Is it the most in the team? How did you get it?
Sun Yingsha: A total of 20 to 30 pins have been collected. I think it should be the most. In fact, at the beginning, I didn’t have too many Chinese pins, so I would tell other table tennis players, “Can you give me a pin? I really don’t have one (laugh).” But if I have one, I will give it to others. .

Zhongxin Sports: Some netizens gave you PS a long hair, do you consider keeping it? Everyone is also very concerned about “face pinching”.
Sun Yingsha: If you have long hair, I guess I will definitely consider it in the future. Short hair is more neat and easy to exercise. As for “pinching the face”, it may be because it is soft, because it is cute. Everyone is out of friendship, and touching it symbolically does not make any effort.
Zhongxin Sports: Will you read the messages everyone left for you? What do you want to say to fans?
Sun Yingsha: Because I have been preparing for the game before, I actually don’t have much time to read everyone’s messages and comments. When I am free, I will watch some, but I may not be able to watch much.
Thank you very much for your continued support and attention to me. I hope I will get better and better and bring you more surprises. I also hope that everyone is healthy, happy, to be the best of themselves every day, to achieve their goals, come on!
