SHANGHAI, May 21 (Xinhua) -- Shanghai men's volleyball team coach Shen Qiong has announced his marriage, according to reports from local media.

"Finally, I got married, before turning 40," said Shen Qiong, who had been captain of the Chinese men's national team before retiring as a player in 2013.

He then took the helm of the Shanghai men's team, leading his boys to five consecutive titles in the Chinese Volleyball League.

"As a coach, I am swamped. She was an athlete too. Thus she knows my career very well, and she is very supportive to me. I am so lucky to have her with me," Shen added.

The 2019-2020 season of the Chinese men's volleyball league has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic following the first round matches played on January 19. It is unknown when the competitions will be resumed. Enditem
