Sichuan Online. At age 16, Ariel Hsing is already exposed to international competitions. Find out what are her goals both in the international arena and in the Chinese Super League.  

Q: You were only 16 years old when you first participated the Olympic Games. How did you feel about that? 

Ariel Hsing: "There was really tension during that time. Before participating, I was in a small corner. I cannot see anything. I can only hear the sounds. Then, after I made some meditations, I felt okay and not nervous anymore. But when I entered the arena and saw six thousand people watching me, I still felt nervous. For the second and third match, I got used to it." 

Q: What is your biggest dream as a professional athlete? 

Ariel Hsing: "It is to win a medal in the Olympic Games. This is in fact very difficult. The Chinese Team is still too strong."

Q: What are your goals coming to the Super League? 

Ariel Hsing: "I was a little worried before coming because I grew up in America and I was afraid that my lifestyle will not be like theirs. But the team has welcomed me very warmly. As for the goals, I think that winning or losing is not important. Coming here to China is for learning. I want to improve myself and of course, winning would be the best.
