Ding Says

My nickname is...

Ding ding.

My good-luck charm is...

to have confidence in myself.

In my bag...

I always have my favorite Nike sports outfit, a water bottle, a cell phone and earphones.

I’m inspired by...

Liu Xiang and my family.

If I wasn’t an athlete...

I’d still work in sports, maybe as a PE teacher or sports promoter.
