Lang Ping said Wednesday that she has stepped down as head coach of the Chinese women’s volleyball team.
Since 2013, the 60-year-old legendary coach has led China to win the Rio Olympics gold, two World Cup championships, one World Championships silver and one bronze.
“I had a lot of happiness over the years, although I am not satisfied this time, but regret is also part of life and a kind of experience that we have to face.”
Lang underlined her enthusiasm for volleyball, but said it is not possible for her to coach the Chinese team forever.
“For so many years I couldn’t spend some quality time with my family, I want make it up and enjoy the happiness from my family. Otherwise, it will be too late,” she said.
Lang, one of the most famous Chinese volleyball players in the 1980s known for her fierce spikes, came back as head coach of the Chinese team again in 2013. The first time she took the post was in 1995.
