Chinese captain Feng Kun A Beijing girl dreaming of the world championship

Chinese captain and starting setter Feng Kun has a wish: to win the world championship with China.

Born in 1979 in the Chinese capital of Beijing, Feng began to play volleyball when she was 10 and fell in love with it soon after.

She joined the local club in Beijing in 1994 and was selected in the national side for the first time one year later.

It was in 2001 that Feng began to make herself known internationally. Chinese head coach Chen Zhonghe made Feng a starter for the first time at the World Grand Prix competition in Harbin, China and rewarded him with a sound performance at the tournament. Then the 1.82-meter setter captained China to win their first major title in 15 years at the World Grand Champions Cup.

Feng and her teammates finished runners-up to Russia in the 2002 Grand Prix finals in Hong Kong, China and clinched the title at the Busan Asian Games. She went a step forward in 2003 by winning the Best Setter honor at the Swiss Volleyball tournament and the Russian President Cup.

The energetic Feng likes reading, traveling, surfing the Internet and listening to the music when she is free. But her biggest wish is to win the world championship.

"I want to become the best setter in the world and win the world championship with my teammates, Feng said. I would like to work hard to make my dream into reality.
