Zhu Ting could be considered a child prodigy, and at 24 years old she’s on pace to accomplish more as a professional athlete than Tom Brady, Lindsey Vonn, Jordan Spieth and Stephen Curry combined.
Now, Zhu Ting is joining the ranks of these other greats as the newest addition to Under Armour’s athlete roster.
She is captain for the Chinese National Volleyball team and a standout for Turkey’s professional club Vakifbank Istanbul. Zhu earned a Gold Medal in Rio at 21, and a World Cup Gold at 20. As MVP, one of 11 such honors, she led the U20 National Team to Gold at 19. She’s the first player to earn back-to-back MVP honors in the history of the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB).
The top-ranked player in the world immediately becomes one of Under Armour’s own MVP’s. She is a face of Asia Pacific for the brand, but a true global icon even at such a tender age.
As a leading global performance and sportswear apparel and footwear brand, Under Armour’s mission is to make all athletes better through passion, design and the relentless pursuit of innovation. Zhu Ting is a great addition which will strengthen Under Armour’s team of professional athletes.
