Viva China Sports, the management of some of China’s top sports teams, recently did a new photoshoot for their athletes. Combined with a shoot from 2011, the shoots make-up an unfortunately not-for-sale calendar of some of the sports realms’ best-looking athletes.
Like a lot of other sports, tennis has risen in China quickly due to greater funding for it over the past years. This year, with $4.5 million in prize money, the Beijing China Open is now for the first time a mandatory, top-level WTA Tour stop. But the sport is also getting boosts from entertainment stars who are helping to push it into the mainstream consciousness. The China Open is in its final rounds, and Jane Zhang and Yang Kun recorded a song for it some time ago.
(This was before Universal started making her look trashy…go back to Hua Yi Jane, not the let’s-remake-songs company!)
