"I am going to retire after this Games," said Wei. "I have not made up my mind on my future, but I am sure I will love volleyball as always."

"It's a pity that we failed to make the semifinals this time," said the Tianjin player of her team's participation in the Chinese National Games. "But we have fought for every point and showed everybody the fighting spirit of Tianjin women's volleyball team."
