Chapter 33 Volleyball – A Team Sport
David：What is your favorite sport?
You：My favorite sport is playing volleyball.
David：How long have you played volleyball?
You：10 years on and off. Actually volleyball is a team sport and sometimes we can’t get enough people who also love to play volleyball, to make up a team and pay the fare. If you’re by yourself, then it’s not so much fun. It’s only practice … exercise.
David：Maybe too individual?
You：Well, it’s different from playing with other people. Too boring. I like volleyball because it is a team sport. I can play and communicate with others and we can all enjoy playing the game together.
David：By the way, I heard that the Chinese national volleyball team is one of the best in the world. Is it true?
You：Yes. Women’s volleyball in particular. There was a time they played so well that they won the championship for five times in a row. Lang Ping was the most famous player back then. She was the team captain. She later coached the national team.
David：How about men’s volleyball?
You：Men’s volleyball pales when compared with the achievements of the women’s. But men are better known for their achievements in basketball, like Yao Ming.
