Middle blocker Zhao Ruirui and setter Feng Kun are back in action with the Chinese women’s volleyball team, after knee injuries that have kept them sidelined for about a year in Feng’s case, and almost four in Zhao’s.
The 6’5″ (1.97-meter) Zhao, the team’s linchpin, has not seen much action since leading the team to a gold medal at the Athens Games in 2004. Feng has been out for about a year following knee surgery. The pair returned for a friendly series against Cuba, which includes matches in Fuzhou, Jinjiang and Xiamen.
Zhao looked healthy and very happy to be playing in the first four matches of the series. She is averaging 10.7 points per game, according to this report from China Daily.
