Team Profile   Coach Profile
In order to prepare for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, the Chinese Menís National Volleyball Team made some adjustments in March this year. Mr. Fu Jun, new trainer, joined the team. The other team officials are the same as last year: Mr. Zhou Jianan, Head coach, former Chinese Team Captain in the 1990s, Xie Guochen, Assistant coach and Team Manager, and Mr. Zhang Luo who is also the team's coach.
Having evaluated the performance of the team at last yearís World Championship, the Head coach determined the best way to reach his goals- to be more indomitable in spirit and to confirm the standard of the players' skills- improving some of the team's weaker aspects.

This year's World League will be a big challenge for the newly built Chinese team, but they will try their best to meet the challenge.

42 year old Zhou Jianan, former setter of the Chinese Menís National Volleyball Team from 1987 to 1999, took part in many major world competitions, such as World Cups and World Championships- three times- and several editions of the FIVB World League.

As captain of the Chinese team, he led his team to win the title of 1997 Champions, as well as the 1999 Asian Championships and the 1998 Asian Games. After retiring from the Chinese National Volleyball Team in 1999, he worked for several years as head coach for the Sichuan Menís Club Team, which finished first in the Chinese National League and won it many times since then. In 2006, the Chinese National Menís Team was adjusted and Mr. Zhou Jianan was appointed as head coach.

Ahead of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, he is determined to select some young players for the team, providing them with as many chances as possible to grow up rapidly. He believes that this new team will try its best to put on a good performance during at this year's World League.
