The Chinese national menís Volleyball team has a history of about 50 years. It has partipated in the World Championship 11 times with a best finish of seventh, the Olympic Games once, the 1999 World Cup and the World League in 1990, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997 and 2002.

In 2001 Mr. Di Anhe was appointed as a head coach. During the 2002 World Championship in Argentina the team obtained more experience from other top level teams. They will keep on its previous charactieristics and at the same time absorb the advanced technique, tactic and skills from the other strong teams of the world.

During the 2003 Asian Volleyball Championship, the new look of the Chinese men's team steadily rose through the ranks to their finish second, qualifying for the World Cup. Compared to a fourth place finish at the 2002 edition, it marks a significant improvement as the younger players ijn the team gather experience.

The World Cup will be the last focus for the 2003 for the team as they try to find the weaknesses and problems of the youthful side, overcoming them and solving them to be ready for next year's qualification tournament for the 2004 Olympic Games.
